PREFACE 

In 1842 J. O. Halliwell edited for the Camden Society 
a volume entitled The Diary of Dr. John Dee. To the diary 
itself, which extends with considerable gaps over the years 
(1554) 1577 to 1 60 1, he appended the catalogue of Dee's 
manuscript library, taken from an autograph MS. in the Gale 
Collection at Trinity College, Cambridge (O. 4. 20). This 
catalogue it is my purpose to reprint here, and to furnish what 
information I can about the books entered in it. 

Bibliographers will readily agree that this is worth doing. 
They will remember that Dee was not merely an alchemist and 
spiritualist, but a really learned man, and one who had done his 
best, by petitions and otherwise, to stimulate interest in the 
rescuing of MSS. from the dissolved monastic libraries and to 
induce the sovereign to establish a central national collection of 
them. They will also be aware that we have but very few 
sixteenth-century English catalogues of manuscript collections, 
and that the investigation of the destinies of a dispersed library 
may be made to throw much light upon the formation of the 
collections which stiU exist. 

It will be as well, before we embark upon the examination ot 
the catalogue, to have before us the leading dates in the life of the 
owner of the books. John Dee was born in 1527. When the 
Diary begins, we find him living at Mortlake. In 1583 (on Sep- 
tember 21) he left England, with the impostor Edward Kelly, for 
Bohemia and Poland, whence, after a most unsuccessful and detri- 
mental sojourn, he returned to Mortlake in December 1589. 
In 1595 he was made Warden of Manchester College (now the 
cathedral) : in 1604 he came back to Mortlake ; and in 1608 
he died there in poverty. 



4 Manuscripts formerly owned by Dr. John Dee 

Our catalogue was made on September 6, 1583, just a fort- 
night before he started for the Continent. As soon as he was 
fairly off, a raid was made upon his house by the less respect- 
able residents in Mortlake (among the better sort he seems to 
have been popular and well-liked), his books were, to some 
extent, dispersed, and valuable scientific instruments broken or 
stolen. On his return six years later he was able to recover, it 
is said, three-fourths of the books, but the apparatus was gone 
for ever. The cause of the raid was no doubt Dee's dealings 
with spirits, which not unnaturally earned for him the reputa- 
tion of being a sorcerer.' 

The catalogue of 1583, then, cannot be regarded as a full 
record of the manuscripts which Dee possessed at the time of 
his death. Some volumes will be entered in it which were lost 
or destroyed soon after it was made, and, on the other hand, 
during the twenty-five years that elapsed between its making 
and Dee's death, it is not to be supposed that he did not make 
additions to his collection. There are, in fact, volumes in exis- 



' The marginal notes written by Dee in the MS. of this catalogue at Trinity 
College relate in some cases to this spoliation. One such, which occurs only 
once in the list of IMSS., but very often indeed in that of the printed books, is 
' J. Davis spoyle '. There are variants of this : e.g. on f. 3 of the MS. apropos 
of a work of Cusanus, ' Jo. Davis toke (wt^i others) by violence out of my 
howse after my going ', followed by the sentence, through which Dee has 
drawn a line, ' He hath got the Mathematicall part of Cusan.' Again, 'Jo. 
Davis sent me one volume home, the other lacketh.' * Jo. Davis spoyle he 
hath not yet restored, as may appere by his letters.' Other like notes are 
' Mr. Jak restored ', ' Widdow Gardiner {or Gardiner's Widdow) restored '. 
Davis, Gardiner, and Jak are all mentioned in the Diary. In Oct. 1579 
Davis figures as one of the persons who are continually being ' reconciled' to 
Dee : in Feb. 1583 he is one of a group who confer with Walsingham about 
the North-West Passage, and in March he goes off to Devonshire. Robert 
Gardiner in May 1582 has revelations vouchsafed to him about the 
philosopher's stone, and seems to have been in Dee's employment. In ]\Iay 
1590 Thomas Jack restores to Dee part of his ' magnes stone ', and in July 
sends him back a hammer.

tence which contain his name, with dates of acquisition long 
subsequent to 1583. 

He may have parted with some of his treasures under stress of 
poverty during the years immediately preceding his death : his 
biographers say that he did : but the fact is not of great impor- 
tance as regards our investigation. It is of more interest to 
learn what happened to the library when he was gone. Upon 
this some light is thrown by Archbishop Ussher's correspon- 
dence. Sir Henry Bourgchier, writing to Ussher in 1624 
(sixteen years after Dee's death), speaks of' Dee's library, which 
hath been long litigious, and by that means unsold ' (JVorks^ 
x{ 227). In another letter (March 23, 1624-5) ^^ ^^7^ 
' Vettius Valens in Greek is Mr. Selden's now, but was some- 
times Dr. Dee's, but the rest of his books will be had very 
shortly, as many as are worth the having'. In October 1626 
Dr. Bainbridge, Professor of Astronomy at Oxford, writes to 
the Archbishop : * I am bold to enter your grace's bibliotheca 
with the humble request that I may have the names of such 
mathematical books as were Dee's.' He adds that he had seen 
in London a list of bare titles of Dee's books, and had been to 
Sir Robert Cotton, but his books were not yet ordered in 
a catalogue. From these passages I gather that litigation (con- 
sequent most likely on Dee's debts) had prevented the dispersion 
of the library until 1625 (probably February i62|), and that, 
when it was finally sold, Ussher and Cotton had made con- 
siderable purchases. Selden, we see, also bought at least 
one book. We find Dee books, too, in the collections of 
Digby, Ashmole, Savile (Sir Henry, who died before Dee) : 
but there is a yet more important purchaser. The number of 
volumes from this source which have made their way to Corpus 
Christi College, Oxford, cannot fail to arrest attention : it con- 
stitutes by far the largest portion of Dee's library that is to be 
found in any one place. 

Now a document exists (C.C.C., Oxford, MS. 280, p. 235) 



6 Manuscripts formerly owned by Dr. John Dee 

which shows that a number of Dee's MSS. were offered for 
sale to the College by Brian Twyne, the famous Oxford anti- 
quary, who was a Fellow of the society. The purchase was 
declined, but the books were ultimately bequeathed by Twyne 
to the College/ 

Twyne's special reason for buying the books I can only con- 
jecture ; but my conjecture takes this form. John Twyne, his 
grandfather, schoolmaster, mayor, and antiquarian, of Canterbury, 
had procured a good many MSS. from the dissolved library of 
St. Augustine's Abbey there, and these had afterwards come 
into Dee's hands : Brian Twyne knew this, and desired to 
recover and keep together his grandfather's collections. Certain 
it is that many of the Dee-Twyne-Corpus Christi books are 
from St. Augustine's,'' less certain that they were owned by 
John Twyne. Brian Twyne, by the way, did not succeed in 
securing all the St. Augustine's MSS. that Dee owned : the 
most important one, the catalogue of the Abbey library, went 
to Ussher, and is now at Dublin. This is all that I can learn 

' The documents are as follows : 

{a) An acknowledgment of £15 due to John White, bookseller in Little 
Britain, for MSS. bought by B. Twyne for the use of the President and 
Scholars of C. C. College in Oxon. to be paid before 14 March. Dated 
22 Feb. 1625: signed Th. Amyan, President. 

{b) A similar acknowledgment by the same of £3 6^. due to 
J. White. Dated 23 Feb. 1625. 

{c) Notes by Twyne, viz. : ' I made a generall catalogue of these bookes 
at London, & when they were brought downe to y® Coll: y^ company would 
not consent that any money shuld be layd out for them. Br. Twyne. 

They were returned vppon y^ President. 

They were parcell of Dr. Dees bookes & some of them very rare : & all 
worthy of y^ buyinge for y^ Coll: Library, if they had byn more.' 

' Several entries, to which I can as yet find no corresponding extant MS., 
answer to entries in the St. Augustine's Catalogue, viz. Nos. 20, (59), 68, 
107, 120, (138), 159, 171, (173). Of the extant MSS. sixteen can be traced 
to St. Augustine's. 

Similarly one or two books may have come from the Austin Friars at 
York (see the catalogue in Fasciculus J. W. Clark dicalus), viz. Nos. 72, 75.

or guess as to the destinies of Dee's MSS, immediately after 
their dispersion. "We find stray volumes making their way 
into the libraries of Pepys, Gale, Harley, and Sloane (one at 
Lambeth must have been bought by Bancroft before Dee's 
death). I have found but one for certain in a foreign library, 
and that belonged to Kenelm Digby. Two others, doubtful, 
are among Queen Christina's MSS. in the Vatican. 

There is more, however, to be said about the growth of the 
collection. We have two lists of Dee's MSS. earlier than 1583. 
One (List A) is in a small notebook of his at Corpus Christi 
College, Oxford (MS. 191). This book contains : 

1. List of MSS. owned by Dee in 1556. 

2. List of MSS. borrowed by him from Peterhouse, Cam- 

bridge, to be returned in 1558.' 

3. Contents of a MS. borrowed from Dr. Hathar. 

4. Contents of a MS. borrowed from Queen's College, 

Oxford. 

5. List of MSS. bought by him from John Leland's library 

in 1556, and from other sources. 

6. Alchemical books read by him in 1556. This last item 

does not concern our present investigation. 

The other (List B) is contained in the British Museum MS. 
Add. 35213 (formerly Phillipps 10701), to which Mr. J. P. 
Gilson and Mr. J. A. Herbert kindly directed my attention. 
It is the volume from which Mr. Gilson printed the very 
interesting catalogue of the MSS. of Long Harry Savile of 

' Of the books (six in number) borrowed in 1556, five are still to be 
found in the catalogue of 1583. But ve must not be hasty in accusing Dee 
of dishonesty. One of the borrowed MSS. (now Ashmole 424) has a note 
in Dee's hand to the effect that it was presented to him by Peterhouse in 
1564 in exchange for a gift of printed books. Dee parted with it before his 
death : in 1606 a ' Dominus Hypsley ' gave or sold it to P(atrick) Saunders. 
These same names occur in another of the books, Ashmole 147 1, also wiih 
the date 1606.

Banke (d. 1617)/ On ff. 1-4 it contains a roughly- written 
list of Dee's books, written and printed, in his autograph, the 
MSS. being entered on ff. 3 (^ and 4. This list cannot be far 
removed from A in date, but it is not clear to me whether it is 
a little the earlier or a little the later of the two. List A is, in 
any case, of greater importance, since it shows the sources whence 
some of Dee's MSS. came. 

My chief object in this investigation is to identify the extant 
remains of Dee's manuscript library. With this in view I have 
examined a great many collections at London, Oxford, Cam- 
bridge, and elsewhere, as occasion offered : and not without 
success. Halliwell gave identifications (not always correct) of 
22 MSS. : mine, certain and doubtful, number over 120. The 
means of identification vary. Sometimes we have Dee's signa- 
ture in full ; but often we have to depend on subsidiary marks : 
autograph notes are not uncommon ; other books bear a A or 

the astrological sign of Jupiter thrice repeated ^^i^) or a mark 

like a small ladder. Sometimes names of owners, like 
P. Saunders, whom we know to have been Dee's associates, com- 
bine with the contents of a MS. to ensure an identification. 
Often the contents of the MS. are the only guide. The list 
itself will afford the reader the means of judging of the weight 
of the evidence in each case. 

I have collated Halliwell's text of O. 4. 20 with the MS. 
without finding any important differences. One feature, it is 
true, Halliwell has omitted to notice, and 1 cannot wholly ex- 
plain. With few exceptions the entries of MSS. up to no. 67 
have a T prefixed to them. The others have in most cases the 
letters Fr. These same letters, T and Fr., are prefixed to the 
entries of printed books, which of course fill the greatest part 
of the MS. For Fr. I can suggest an interpretation. At the 
very beginning of the volume is this note in Dee's hand, 
minutely written and somewhat injured : 

' Trans. Bibliogr. Soc. vol. ix. 1907.

Andreas Fremonshemius j Birkmannorum Coloiniensium in 
Anglicos(?) I Distractor Librorum | siue Bibliopola . . . | exscri" 
psit Mortlacii | ipsos omnes . . . j singulos libros | considerans. 

The Fr. then may indicate Fremonshemius, the agent of 
the Birkmanns, who perhaps contemplated buying the library, 
but cannot ultimately have done so. Who T was I cannot now 
guess — not Twyne, at any rate. Happily the letters seem to 
have no value as indicating the present whereabouts of the books. 

There is a second MS. of the catalogue of 1583, viz. Harley 
1879 : it is in the same hand as the Gale MS., but does not 
contain the letters T and Fr., nor any marginal notes by Dee. 
It has, however, prefixed to the catalogue on f 1 9'' of the whole 
volume (which contains several catalogues) a note in Dee's 
hand (I think) which is not without interest, though it does not 
bear directly on our subject : 

* In the Book of St. Aug^''" of Canterbury . being a large Foil. 
Book in an old red cover containing 385 leaves. 

The beginning of the book is in a latter hand then most of 
the book and is an Exemplification and Confirmation of all the 
charters of the Kings proinde (J) to Ed. the sonn of Edward 
mad in the time Radulphi Abbatis. 

In the first leaf of the old hand, after the former Exemplifi- 
cation, and vnder the charter of King Aethelbert and priueledg 
of St. Aug**=" anglorum apostoli, there is wrytten thes words 
following in a rud secretary hand 

Liber Johannis Twyne de grayes Ine ex dono patris sui 
Johannis Twyne Teste Humfrido Jurdano Rectore 
ecclesie de Sturmowthe. per me John Twyne 

The sam is wrytten in pag. of the sam book 212 over a deed 
of 3 roods and a half of land in Newland 

This book is now in the hands of on Mr. Wilford of Kent 
an[d] old gentellman being in fette(r) layn a recusant.' 

The book here described is doubtless the Cotton MS. 
Claud. D. X. 



lo Manuscripts formerly ozuned by Dr. John Dee 

We find more of it in Clark {Wood's Life and Times^ iv. 91, 
Oxf. Hist. Soc). Brian Twyne (xvi. 407) cites: Thomas de 
Thanet (vixit 1272) Matricula scil. de variis chartis libertatibus 
ac privilegiis et possessionibus monasterii S. Aug. Cant. Init. 
In nomine domini J. C. notum sit omnibus tam praesentibus 
quam posteris quod ego Adhelbertus. It was given by John 
Twyne of Canterbury (but query of Gray's Inn : see above) to 
Thomas Smyth high-customer of London, and was afterwards 
in the hands of Richard James of C.C.C. Oxford : a thick 
4to with a red cover. 

The notes have some interest as recording the fact that John 
Twyne owned yet another St. Augustine's book. 

Of the general character of the collection a few words must 
be said. It is in the main a special one, got together to assist 
Dee in his peculiar studies. Had it survived intact it would 
have been a first-class repository of mediaeval science books 
excluding medicine. Alchemy, astrology, astronomy, physics, 
geometry, optics, mathematics are all very copiously repre- 
sented ; and Dee appears to have given special attention to 
collecting the works of two great writers, Roger Bacon and 
Raymund Lull. There is very little theology, and no ancient 
poetry. Among the classical MSS., one containing the versions 
of Plato's Phaedo and Meno^ which was made in Sicily for 
Frederick IV — see Val. Rose's articles on it in Hermes^ vol. i — 
is of special interest. History, British and English, is perhaps 
the subject best represented next to Natural Science. One 
Welsh MS. occurs. 

Few of the MSS. which can be identified are very old. Perhaps 
the oldest is the Lauderdale Orosius, now at Helmingham, which 
is not in the catalogue. The Priscianus Lydus (a. 15), Isidore 
(94), Boethius (114), Aethicus (9,80) are of respectable antiquity. 

I have not attempted to collect here notices of MSS. of Dee's 
own writing.

\_PhiUipps MS. 16345 forvierly Libri, 665 in sale catalogue of \%^i, 
lot 870 in 1896 Phillipps sale. The entry in the Libri catalogue is : 

Euclidis Geom. Opt. Catoptr. cum figuris | lordani de algorismo cum 
commento. De minuciis cum commento | Gerardi de Brussel liber 
de motu | Archimedes de quadratura circuli | De curvis super-

prete loh. Hispaniensi cent. xii. ff. 209. 

The items common to the two lists are striking and the discrepancies 
not beyond what may be paralleled in this catalogue. I believe this 
Phillipps MS. to be the one which Dee borrowed of Bruarn the 
Oxford professor of Hebrew and momentary Provost of Eton. But 
if so, the latter part of it — William of Conches, etc. — must have been 
detached since Dee's time.^

ADDITIONAL NOTE 

Dee's own account of the pillage of his library, and ot its 
value, is to be found in the * briefe note and abstract ' of 
his career (drawn up in 1592) which is printed by Hearne 
in Jo/i. Glastoniensis (II. 500). Here, on p. 529, we read : — 

' The divers bookes of my late library, printed & anciently written, 
bound & unbound, were in all near 4000 : the fourth part of which were 
the written bookes.' He values them at £2,000. 'And, to make this 
valuation probable unto your Honour, behold yet here these four written 
bookes, one in Greek, this great volumn ; two in French ; and this in High 
Dutch. They cost me and my friends for me 533'*^' . . . What is then to 
be thought of the value of some one hundred of the best of all the other 
written bookes, of which some were the autograpJia of excellent & seldome 
heard-of Authors? The furniture of the said library was of my getting 
together in above 40 yeares time from divers places beyond the seas, & 
some by my great search and labour gotten here in England '. He then 
gives some account of his mathematical instruments, and of two collections 
of Irish and Welsh deeds (the latter, apparently, rescued from a half-ruined 
church). On p. 534 he values his lost books (above 500) — ' I mean such as 
may be gotten for money ' — at above £ 1 50. 

I cannot tell what the four MSS. were which he produced 
as a sample ; but the price paid for them is enormous ; and 
the catalogue of the MSS. shows that in 1583 he did not 
possess much over 200 MSS., whereas here he reckons them 
at 1,000. I doubt if we can trust his figures ; but the extract 
deserves to be quoted, and the ' abstract ' to be read.

THE SPANISH BOOKS IN 



THE LIBRARY OF 



SAMUEL PEPYS 



BY 



STEPHEN GASELEE, M.A., F.SA., C.B.E. 

LIBRARIAN AND KEEPER OF THE PAPERS AT THE FOREIGN OFFICE 
SOMETIME LIBRARIAN OF MAGDALENE COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE 



PRINTED AT THE OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS 

FOR THE BIBLIOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY 

1921 



THE SPANISH BOOKS IN THE LIBRARY 
OF SAMUEL PEPYS^ 

INTRODUCTION 

THIS paper has grown out of the discussion which 
followed that read by Dr. Thomas before the Biblio- 
graphical Society on ' The Output of Spanish Books 
in the Sixteenth Century ' {The Library, Fourth Series, 
vol. i, p. 93). 

I do not know where Pepys learned his Spanish, but he 
was a competent scholar quite early in life, able both to read 
and to talk. By his generation the fear and hatred of Spain, 
dating from the days of the Armada, seem to have died 
away ; perhaps the negotiations for a Spanish match when 
Charles I was Prince of Wales had taught Englishmen that 
Spaniards were not the suUen bigots they had formerly 
believed them to be ; perhaps our nation has only room for 
one real enemy at a time, and this place was occupied 
successively by France and Holland. At any rate, two years 
after the Restoration, on the occasion of a famous affray 
between the retainers of the Spanish and French Ambassadors 
in London, Pepys is found to remark, * Indeed we do naturally 
all love the Spanish, and hate the French '.^ 

Very shortly after the opening of the Diary, he tells us 
how * This morning I lay long abed, and then to my office, 

^ Read before the Bibliographical Society, 17 January 1 92 1 
^ Diary, 30 September 1661. 



6 The Spanish Books in the 

where I read all the morning my Spanish book of Rome '.* 
It is not necessary to take up time in contrasting the lives of 
a ci\dl servant then and now. This book is no. 157 of the 
list printed at the end of this paper — Las cosas maravtllosas 
delta Sanaa Ciudad de Roma, a Spanish edition of the well- 
known Mirabilia urbis Romae, the stock guide-book for visitors 
to Rome, printed there for the use of Spanish pilgrims in 
1 65 1. It must have been one of the earliest Spanish 
acquisitions made by Pepys. 

The following description of a translation does not neces- 
sarily prove that Pepys knew its original. One Sunday,^ 
after a day of mixed experiences (he had talked with some 
of his great friends and official superiors, heard a sermon in 
the Royal Chapel at \Vhitehall, visited another church in 
Southwark but found it too hot to stay there, dined with 
his wife and father, looked in at a church again, and flirted 
with his old flame Betty Martin), he seems to have felt the 
need of quiet and solitude : so he took a boat all alone and 
went up-stream to Barn Elms (near Alortlake). There he 
landed and took a turn ; then ' to my boat again, and home, 
reading and making an end of the book I lately bought — 
a merry satyr, called " The Visions ", translated from 
Spanish by L'Estrange, wherein there are many very pretty 
things ; but the translation is, as to the rendering it into 
English expression, the best that ever I saw, it being 
impossible almost to conceive that it should be a translation'. 
This book was Roger L'Estrange's translation of ^he Visions 
of Quevedo ; I am the more doubtful if the judgement 
which I have just quoted was necessarily founded on a know- 
ledge of the original, because there is not a copy of The Visions 
in Spanish in the library : no. 70 in my list is a different work. 
I do, however, consider that the following passage ^ shows 

* Diary, ii February 1659/60. 2 jbid,^ ^ June 1667, 

3 Ibid., 28 April 1669. 



Library of Samuel Pepys 7 

that Pepys not only possessed but read one serious Spanish 
work : ' This morning Mr. Sheres sent me, in two volumes, 

* Mariana his History of Spaine, in Spanish, an excellent 

* book, and I am much obliged for it to him '. I do not know 
whether this was a loan or a gift ; if the latter, it affords an 
example of a practice of Pepys which has long been well 
known — that he was accustomed to expel from his library 
an early edition of a book when he afterwards acquired 
a later ; for the edition of Mariana now in the library 
(no. 100 in my Hst) is dated 1678. It was an extraordinarily 
popular book in Spain, being reprinted over and over again 
in the seventeenth century ; and at the end of that century 
(1699) was even translated into English. 

We may find small corroborative pieces of evidence of 
Pepys's knowledge of the Spanish language in his occasional 
use of Spanish words or expressions, without a rendering, in 
the Diary. Sometimes, when recording somewhat delicate 
subjects, he tries to make his shorthand a little more difficult 
— or at any rate less intelligible to the casual reader — by 
intercalating a few words in a foreign language ; for this 
purpose Spanish and French are most often employed, the 
former perhaps a little more frequently than the latter ; 
ItaHan much less often. He mentions on one occasion ^ 
how in conversation his friend Mr. Creed told him ' that 
the Juego de Toros is a simple sport ' (a delusion which 
obtains in the mind of every EngUshman, I suppose, until 
he has learned to appreciate the wonderful skill required in 
all that take part in it), ' but the greatest in Spain ' ; on 
another,^ Carteret is walking with Pepys in a garden and, 
suddenly angry with Sir William Penn, shakes his fist towards 
Penn's house and cries ' Guarda mi spada ; for, by God, I may

were clearly in a language with which he was quite famihar.

He sometimes mentions his purchases of Spanish books. 
After a visit to Westminster,^ ' So home through Duck Lane 

* [the street we now know as " Little Britain "] to inquire 

* for some Spanish books, but found none that pleased me '. 
Again ^ ' Staying a little while in Paul's Churchyard, at the 

* foreign bookseller's, looking over some Spanish books, and 

* with much ado keeping myself from laying out money there '. 
Again ^ ' Through Bedlam, calling by the way at an old book- 

* seller's, and there fell into looking over Spanish books and 

* pitched upon some, till I thought of my oath when I was 

* going to agree for them, and so with much ado got myself 

* out of the shop glad at my heart and so away '. He records 
in more than one passage the vows he made to abstain from 
wine and theatre-going, and I suppose he made himself 
similar promises not to spend money on books. Again * 

* Walked down as low as Duck Lane and enquired for some 

* Spanish books, and so back again '. 

Of greater interest is the following entry ^ : * Thence to 

* Duck Lane and did overlook a great many of M. Fouquet's 

* Library that a bookseller hath bought, and I did buy one 

* Spanish work : Los Illustres Varones.' Lord Braybrooke, 
in his note on this passage, conjectured that the book might 
either be Los Claros Varones, by Fernando del Pulgar, 
historiographer to Ferdinand and Isabella, or the Varones 
ilustres del Nuevo Mundo of Fernando Pizarro y Orellana. 
It is, however, neither of these, but the Summa de Varones 
illustres of Juan de Sedeno (no. 1 66 of my list), which is still 
in the library in Nicolas Fouquet's binding. 

We can identify with equal certainty the subject of the 
next entry.® * By coach to see Roger Pepys at his lodgings,

* next door to Arundell House, a barber's ; and there I did 

* see a book, which my Lord Sandwich hath promised one 
' to me of, " A description of the Escuriall in Spaine," which 
' I have a great desire to have, though I took it for a finer 

* book when he promised it me.' I do not know whether 
Pepys wheedled this copy out of his cousin, or whether Lord 
Sandwich fulfilled his promise : but he obtained the book 
(no. 65 in my list), which is the Descripcion breve del Mona- 
sterio de S. Lorenzo el Real del Escorial, by Francisco de los 
Santos. The work was published in 1657, but the copy in 
the Pepysian Library is of the 1667 edition, which accords 
precisely with the time when he saw it in Roger's possession. 

Before I come to speak of the printed Spanish books which 
form the subject of this paper, I should mention the com- 
paratively small quantity of Spanish manuscript material in 
the library. The most important item is what is familiarly 
called * The Armada Book ' ; or, as Pepys himself describes 
it in his catalogue, ' The original Libro de Cargos (as to 
' provisions and munition) of the Proveedor-General of the 

* Spanish Armada, 1588 '. It consists of a large number of 
single or double sheets bound together ; each is headed 
with the name of one of the ships of the Armada, and the 
captain's name ; below follows the exact quantity of pro- 
visions aboard each boat — the amount of biscuit, wine, 
bacon, rice, pease, vinegar, oil, water, cheese, tunny, &c., 
with a Hst of various utensils also aboard, such as pots, dishes, 
and measures. These sheets are contained in a vellum 
binding ; through the whole, including the covers, is a large 
circular hole, about three-quarters of an inch in diameter — 
the remains, I suppose, of a primitive system of filing, and 
then used so that the book could hang conveniently on 
a peg aboard ship, easy to take down for reference. On the 
front cover is the title of the volume in a tall uncial : ' Libro 

* de Cargos : de Bastimentos y municiones que se hazen a los 



lo The Spanish Books in the 

' Cappitanes y mfes y Patrones de las Naves y otros navios 
' que sirven en el Armada de su MG^ Este Anno De 

* MDLXxxvii Siendo Proveedor della Bernabe de Pedroso.' 
We do not know anything of the history of the volume ; 
but I think we can guess it. Pepys was a passionate collector 
of * curiosities ', particularly of any connected with naval 
history ; and just as he would sometimes order a book for 
his private library and have it put down to the Admiralty 
account (' I think I will let the King pay for this ' is the 
way he puts it), so I doubt not that the Lihro de Cargos had 
come ashore from one of the captured ships of the Armada, 
and been preserved at the Admiralty ; found there by Pepys, 
he thought that it was of no immediate and practical value 
to the business of the office at the moment, and would figure 
better on his own select shelves than lost among the dry 
papers of a Government Department. 

I come now to a volume of which the interest is not in the 
first instance Spanish, but musical. No. 2591 in the library is 

* Songs and other Compositions, Light, Grave, and Sacred, 

* for a Single Voice. Adjusted to the particular Compass of 

* mine ; with a Thorough-Base on ye Ghitarr by Cesare 

* Morelli '. This is a most handsome book, written in a fine 
large hand (not Pepys's own) both words and music, and 
bound in black morocco, partly blind-tooled and partly in 
gilt tooling and red morocco inlaid ; it contains songs of 
very various kinds (e.g. 'Beauty retire', 'Amanti, fuggite', 

* Les cocus sont bons ', ' To be or not to be ', and most of 
the choral parts of the Book of Common Prayer). On leaf 13 
comes a Spanish song called ' Dodina '. After an introductory 
refrain * Dodina, Dodinette ', it runs : 

* Adam ! Samson ! Salomon ! 
Dios nos libre de Mugeres ! 
bellas, o no vellas ; 
mal podemos star sin ellas. 



Library of Samuel Pepys n 

Mas despues de Las aver visto ; 
perdonad nos Jesu Christo ! ' 
I have not been able to identify this song ; but the thought 
is not uncommon. My friend Mr. Salvador de Madariaga 
points out to me in a collection ^ of Spanish popular songs 
the following verse of the same or rather later date : 
* La mujer engan6 a Adan, 
a David y ^ Salomon, 
a Holofernes capitan 
y al valeroso Sanson.' ^ 
The same volume has two additional songs written, 
apparently as an afterthought, on the final fly-leaves, and not 
included in the ' Table ' of Contents. The first is in Latin, 
the second a piece of Spanish verse : 

' Lo del Cielo es lo que dura ; 
que lo que en la tierra esta, 
muy presto se acabara. 

^ Revue His-panique, December 1914, p. 382. 

2 The collocation of these names as victims of feminine wiles is almost a 
commonplace in mediaeval literature. In a poem 'Deproprietate feminarum,* 
attributed by Professor Carlo Pascal {Letteratura Latina Medievale, Catania, 
1909, p. 108) without too much certainty to Adam of Barking, a thirteenth- 
century monk of Sherborne, we find the couplet : 

* Adam Sansonem Petrum David et Salomonem 
Femina devicit. Quis modo tutus erit ? ' 
and as proverbs or parts of proverbs (Jakob Werner, Lateinische S-prichiOdrt^r und 
Sinnspriiche des Mittelalters, Heidelberg, 191 2, p. 2) : 

' et Salomonem, 
Vergilium summum, Aristotelem arte profundum 
Femina decepit : quis nunc evadere posset ? ' 
and better still : 

' Adam, Sampsonem, Lot, David, si Salomonem 
Femina decepit, quis modo tutus erit ? ' 
All, I think, must come ultimately from a sentence of St. Jerome's : ' Nee 
' sub eodem tecto cum muliere manseris, nee in praeterita castitate confidas, 
' quia nee tu Sansone fortior nee Solomone sapientior,' and still more from 
another of St. Augustine's : * Davidem, Samsonem et Salamonera Satan 
' decepit, Christum tentavit : quis modo tutus erit f '

Los tesoros y Riqueza, 
y los mas altos estados, 
en tierra, humo, y pobreza, 
seran muy presto tornados ; 
que quien pone sus cuydados 
en lo mudabile de aca, 
muy presto se acabara. 

Triste deleyte y pequefio, 
es el placer deste mundo ; 
pues va a dar en el profundo, 
en un punto con su Dueno. 
Al principio es halagueno ; 
mas al fin amargara, 
muy presto se acabara. 

Tan presto passa y fenece, 

toda la honra mundana, 

come una sombra liviana ; 

que luego desaparece. 

al que mayor honra ofrece, 

mas vano lo dexara, 

muy presto se acabara.' 
This poem, which is not without merit, if somewhat 
gloomy in temperament, comes from the collection made by 
Christobal Salvador (Letras contra el abuso de los juramentos) 
which is no. i6i in my list, except that Pepys has copied lo 
for le in the last line but one. 

Turning now to the printed books, fortune has preserved 
to us one interesting record of the way in which some of them 
were acquired. I have mentioned above the occasions 
recorded in the Diary when Pepys bought Spanish books ; 
later in his life he used to commission friends who were 
travelling abroad to buy books for him and send or bring 
them home. We know for instance that in 1699 ^^"^ 170°) 



Library of Samuel Pepys

John Jackson, Pepys's favourite nephew and heir, was travelling 
in Europe and was obeying his uncle's request to buy books ; 
but though we know he was in Spain in December 1700,^ 
I have no definite evidence that he bought anything there 
for the library — no new books, certainly, for none have so 
late a date as this. 

Nearly twenty years before, however, Pepys had sent 
other commissions ; and we are fortunate enough to possess 
in the Bodleian Library " a bill for some books bought at 
Seville on his account. It is endorsed ' Mr. Fowler's Bill ', 
and is dated from Seville on the first of January 1683/4 : I have 
no clue to Mr. Fowler's identity — he is not any of the Fowlers 
mentioned in the Diary — but he was clearly a friend travelling 
in Spain who had been requested to make some purchases for 
the library.^ The bill is as follows :

All these identifications are certain except the Dos Novelas. 
If the expression means ' two separate collections of stories ', 

^ On 3 December 1700 Pepys was writing to Jackson at Cadiz, bidding 
him go to Madrid in time to see the entry of the new king, Philip V. 

- Rawlinson MS. A. 190, f. 146, 

^ On 26 January i66f we similarly find Mr. W. Batelier commissioned to 
buy some books for Pepys in France.

Mr. Fowler may have bought, as I have suggested, the 
Novelas Ejemplares of Cervantes and the Novelas Amorosas 
of Dona Maria de Zayas. On the other hand the price 
(about 5/.) is perhaps a Httle low for two such books, and as 
the Novelas of Dona Alaria de Zayas are divided into a first 
and second part, these alone may be intended. On the 
other hand the price is too high to have been paid for a mere 
couple of chap-books. The last entry clearly means that 
a few pages, perhaps a gathering, were missing from the copy 
of Ribadeneira's Flos Sanctorum, and had to be supplied in 
order to complete it. I am sorry to say that the Pepysian 
Library does not possess the pack of cards which Mr. Fowler 
bought for his friend. 

The prices are reckoned in ' pieces of eight ' {piezas de 
d ocho) and silver reals {reales de plata). Reckoning the latter 
at ^d. or double the copper real, and therefore the former 
at 3/. 4^., the ten books cost about £4 loj., which seems 
a very fair price. 

The list printed at the end of this paper contains all 
the books in the library in the Spanish language,^ and thus 
includes several printed outside Spain : some in the Low 
Countries, tw^o in Lisbon ^ (one in Spanish and one in Latin), 
and one or two in France and England respectively. 

The Spanish version of the Book of Common Prayer 
(no. 91) has a puzzling title-page : Augusta Trinobantum 
must be a pedantic Latin form of ' London ', but I confess 
that the decipherment of the date, cic.ici.ixiiv, is beyond 
me: perhaps it is a mistake for cio. loc. xxiiv (=1623). 
This was the year when Charles I, then Prince of Wales, 
was in Spain attempting to negotiate a match with the 
Infanta. Pepys copied out ^ on the fly-leaves at the 

^ And Latin books printed within the Peninsula. 
^ For his knowledge of Portuguese, see Diary, 17 March i66f.

Library of Samuel Pepys 15 

beginning of his volume a letter, dated 26 July 1623, from 
Bishop Wilhams of Lincoln, the Lord Keeper, to the Duke of 
Buckingham, who was with the Prince in Spain, in which he 
says he is sending two copies of it, more to follow if required, 
and that the translation was made by an ex-Dominican, 

* a zealous Protestant and a good SchoUer, and I have Secured 

* him to our Church with a benefice and a good Prebend '. 

I woidd then draw especial attention to the two volumes 
in the library marked 1545 and 1553 respectively. Although 
my list contains 185 different works, they are contained in 
a very much less number of volumes ; for the former of 
these two is composed of no fewer than 70 ballads bound 
together, of which the great majority were printed at Seville 
about 1680^; the latter 26 comedies, most of them on moral 
and religious subjects, by the best seventeenth-century 
Spanish dramatists. None of these comedies unfortunately 
bears a date or the name of the printer or the place of printing. 
Just as Pepys performed so great a service to popular English 
literature by his collection of broadside English ballads in 
five folio volumes, and his bound volumes of chap-books, so 
he did what he could, at a distance, to preserve specimens of 
popular Spanish literature ; and of quite a number of these 
Spanish ballads I have been able to find no trace in the books 
of reference available to me. I should also imagine that the 
two printed Papal Bulls of 1684 (nos. 42 and 43 of my list) 
might be hard to find elsewhere.^ 

* I ma^ perhaps call especial attention to no. 59 — Lope Falcon's three 
ballads, Curioso Tratado de las Ordenanzas del Tabaco. 

* 2 A Spanish translation of this Introduction (without the following list) has 
appeared in Hermes, ' Revista del pais Vasco ', Ano v, no. 73, July 1921.

INTRODUCTION 

A T a meeting of the Council of the Bibliographical 
/\ Society on 9 July 1923 Mr. Stephen Gaselee reported 
Jl \that Mr. Jenkinson had prepared a list of the fifteenth- 
century books collected by Mr. George Dunn, as sold at 
Sotheby's (1913-17^), arranged in what has come to be 
known as ' Proctor order ', i. e. according to country, town, 
and printer in the order in which printing was begun, the 
entries of the books from each press being kept as closely as 
possible in their chronological sequence. The Council re- 
solved that Mr. Jenkinson should be asked to allow the list 
to be printed as one of the Supplements to the Bibliographical 
Society's Transactions, both as a tribute to Mr. Dunn and for 
its own interest. One of the secretaries happened to be 
going to Cambridge towards the end of the month, and thus 
had the privilege of seeing Mr. Jenkinson on the last day but 
one that he was on duty at the University Library (29 July). 
The mission was unexpectedly successful, for not only was 
the manuscript of the Dunn list handed over without demur, 
but a promise was given that a similarly arranged list of all 
the incunabula in the University Library should also be 
printed, a promise which, it is good to know, is likely to bear 
fruit. While these negotiations were in progress the Librarian

November 1917 (£11,737 4^. 6d.). Part IV was sold before Part III. The 
four sales comprised altogether 4,627 lots. References to these are given in 
the List in round brackets. The references preceding these are to ' Hain ',

was called away for a moment, and his visitor then heard for 
the first time of the impending need for an operation. A word 
of sympathy was answered with great cheerfulness, and so 
with the manuscript of the list of Mr. Dunn's books in his 
hand he took his leave of the most lovable of librarians. - 
Naturally the list has assumed a new importance since 
Mr. Jenkinson's death. Some readers of this note will re- 
member that it was with a similar list, A Classified Index 
of the Fifteenth-Century Books in the De Meyer Collection sold 
at Ghetitj November i86g, that Henry Bradshaw, in April 
1870, had inaugurated the ' natural history' method in the 
description of books interesting chiefly for the place they hold 
in the history of printing. Mr. Jenkinson was Bradshaw's- 
disciple, perhaps the only one who lived on to our own day 
who caught from personal intercourse with him his special 
interest in the books of the Netherlands and the early Cologne 
presses, and went on working on his lines for the rest of his 
life and passing on his enthusiasm to others. 

The compilation of the present list was, no doubt, inspired 
by Bradshaw's example, but it is no mere repetition by 
Mr. Jenkinson of what Bradshaw had done for a small foreign 
collection of incunabula, from which the Cambridge University 
Library had made numerous purchases. Mr. Dunn's collec- 
tion was built up with Bradshaw's methods and ideals kept 
steadily in view ; the five hundred Woolley Photographs 
which he had made with his own hands from his own books 
testify to its importance. Thus, when the collection was 
unhappily dispersed, to assemble a worthy record of it was 
the most graceful tribute which an elder disciple of Bradshaw's 
could pay to the memory of a younger one, who was in a sense 
also his own pupil. The work which Mr. Dunn achieved is 
not on a level with Proctor's, but it complements it, and has 
its own importance, and it is an honour to the Bibliographical 
Society to have been allowed to print for its members the 



Introditction vii 

memorial which Francis Jenkinson spent his leisure in raising 
to George Dunn. 

As the list was handed over by Mr. Jenkinson it contained 
notes of the books from the Dunn collection bought by the 
Cambridge University Library (U.L.C.), by Air. Charles 
Thomas Stanford (C.T .-C), and Sir William Osier. Mr. Dunn 
was a frequent visitor to the British Museum, and it was 
thought that it would be his wish that the list should show 
the considerable purchases the Department of Printed Books ^ 
made at the four sales, more particularly of French books. 
The initials B.M. denote these, while S.G. mark the purchases 
of Mr. Gaselee, and T.C.C. a few books acquired by Trinity 
College. With time it would have been possible largely to 
add to these notes ; perhaps (wdth the help of the numbers 
attached to the entries) it may be possible to do something 
more later on, but it was desired to issue the list without delay 
and also without changing its character by too many additions. 
For the latter reason a couple of entries in which Mr. Jenkinson 
followed Proctor, without taking note of later theories, have 
not been altered. 

Mr. Dunn has left pleasant memories behind him. At the 
British Museum there are specially recalled various consulta- 
tions on knotty problems, his jocose offers to sell members 
of the staff a hundred or so of sheep from his Northumberland 
estates, his appearing one Christmas Eve laden with four 
largish incunables as a present to the Museum — but his 
friendliness with his fellow bookmen was not sufhciently 
intimate to make possible any memoir that could compete 
with the excellent obituary notice (here and there, perhaps, 
a little high-pitched) which appeared in The Times. Per- 
mission has therefore been obtained to prefix a reprint of this to 

^ By the generosity of Mr. F. W. Bourdillon in standing aside the Depart- 
ment of Manuscripts also secured the extraordinarily interesting ' Chancun de 
Willame ', one of Mr. Dunn's greatest finds. 



viii Introduction 

Mr. Jenkinson's list. Of Mr. Jenkinson himself members 
have been offered in The Library a note of the brief com- 
memoration by Mr. Gaselce at our October meeting, together 
with a reduced copy of the photogravure distributed to 
subscribers to his portrait by Mr. Sargent. But a notice 
vi'hich appeared, over the initials H. F. S. in the Cambridge 
Review for 26 October is such a vivid and truthful memory- 
sketch, that leave has been obtained from the editor and the 
writer (the Rev. H. F. Stewart, D.D.) to print this also, in the 
certainty that members of the society will be glad to have it 
permanently preserved in one of our books.

FRANCIS JENKINSON. 1853-1923 ' 

A PAGE of print about Francis Jenkinson will not be of much 
hc4p to those who did not know him, and it is not needed by 
those who did. Still, a close intimacy of over forty years 
entitles me to pay public tribute to the beloved master, the 
incomparable friend, a man who came, many of us thought, 
as near to moral and intellectual perfection as is possible on 
earth. 

He was not a creative genius ; but his manifold and always 
first-class achievement, his immediate response to every kind 
of beauty, indicate an intelligence of extraordinary power and 
a very high artistic gift. 

Though there were of course wide gaps in his learning — 
when men called him learned, he said ' Rubbish ' — his 
interests were amazing both in range and depth ; and, when 
he settled down to a particular subject, he mastered it with 
such rapidity, ease, and completeness that his knowledge 
seemed instinctive rather than acquired. I do not think he 
* read ' much at college, but he was admittedly one of the 
finest classical scholars of his time. The late J. M. Image 
told me that Jenkinson's work as a lad in the Trinity scholar- 
ship examination was the wonder of the examiners. What 
it was in maturity may be seen in his Lecture Room Fair 
Copies. Long after he had given up teaching classics his fine 
Latinity enabled him to produce a trustworthy text of that 
curious farrago, the Hispericajamina (for an account of which

X Francis Jenkinson 

the reader must go to Prothero's Memoir of Henry Bradshaw). 
With native and Cambridge scrupulousness he refrained then 
(1908) from hazarding a translation or an exposition ; but 
I have reason to think that, had he lived, he would have 
thrown new light on this bit of mediaeval darkness. 

He might have gone far in mathematics, and he always 
kindled to a pretty problem. Pascal's Mystical Hexagram 
gave him special delight. 

He was a first-rate naturalist. Indeed, it was his scientific 
bent, plus his sense of beauty, aided by unusually acute 
eyesight, that led him later to his supremacy in palaeography 
and bibliography. It is significant that his first University 
post (1878) was in the Museum of Zoology, which has cer- 
tainly no reason to regret his connexion with it. 

The story of Jenkinson and the flies illustrates as well as 
anything the versatility, swiftness, and intuitive character of his 
genius. Moths had attracted him from early childhood ; he 
had worked hard at Microlepidoptcra with E. Meyrick at 
Marlborough, but his serious attention was first turned 
towards Diptera by Dr. D. Sharp in 1900. He at once began 
to catch, on the window-panes of his house, in his little 
Brookside garden, in Wiltshire, in Morayshire, in Sussex, 
species new to Cambridge, new to Britain, new to science, 
and he became within a few years a dipterologist second to 
none. His vast collection is now in the Museum. Laymen 
were often amused by his pocket-loads of pill-boxes and the 
mantis-like agility with which he captured flies to fill them ; 
but the smile turned to amazement at the skill with which 
the tiniest creatures were pinned and set, and to reverence 
at the delight and wonder with which unsuspected beauties 
were discovered under the microscope. 

He knew all birds and their notes and the times of their 
coming and going. The second (possibly the first) recorded 
occurrence of the Killdccr Plover in Britain was due to his 



Francis Jenkinson xi 

observation ; he guessed its identity by its note.^ He loved 
to listen to the voices of migrants in the darkness, and to hear 
the snipe drum over the Fen. 

He was a good botanist and an expert gardener, watching 
over his own plants with paternal and individual attention, 
and waging war on weeds, not only at home, but wherever 
he walked. 

He was a sound antiquary, as his papers for the Cambridge 
Antiquarian Society testify ; and the Museum of Archaeology 
in Downing Street is rich with the spoils of his diggings 
round Cambridge, conducted in company with Professor 
Hughes and Baron A. von Hiigel, which he recalled with the 
same glee as the moth hunts of his undergraduate days on 
the Broads, on Wicken Fen, and in the New Forest with 
A. B. Farn. 

I have said that he was sensitive to every kind of beauty. 
It was a treat to visit the Turner Water-Colours under his 
wing ; good drawing delighted him, from the Anglo-Saxon 
manuscripts in Corpus to the current number of Punch. 
' How these fellows can draw,' he said each week. A fine 
sunset — there was one after his own heart on the day he 
died — moved him, in his own words, ' like an orchestra ', and 
that is saying a great deal. For, without being a performer 
or a trained musician, he had a profound knowledge and an 
-ecstatic appreciation of all good music. There was something 
in Wagner, though he admitted his power, which made him 
shudder — the sensuous appeal, the unwillingness to come to 
a close. And he frankly did not understand the licence of 
these latter days and the stuff which, to him, was ' more like 
chemistry than art '. But from the Virginals' Book to the 
Wasps of Vaughan-Williams he took his pleasure royally, in

a large field, and he made you share in it. To go to a concert 
with him was to be transported into another sphere. Re- 
nowned musicians admitted him to their counsels and prized 
his judgement. 

But his workshop was the Library and his life's business 
was the care of books. Never did they have a more jealous 
guardian. His interest in them as objects of scientific study 
was kindled by Henry Bradshaw in the early 'eighties, when 
he was assistant tutor at Trinity. It was then, in 1883, that 
he began the valuable collection of books printed in Cam- 
bridge, which he afterwards gave to the University. He 
made such rapid progress in bibliography that when Bradshaw 
died, in February 1886, Jenkinson was already recognized by 
many as his proper successor. But he would not hear of 
standing, not that he was particularly attached to the task 
of lecturing and of correcting compositions, but because he was 
practically pledged to support Robertson-Smith. When his 
own turn came in 1889, he was further qualified for the office 
by his work upon Bradshaw's remains — notes for Mr. Words- 
worth's edition of the Sarum Breviary and the collecting of 
Bradshaw's fugitive papers into one volume. 

His thirty-four years at the Library made him master of the 
written and the printed book — few men in England had a 
better ' feel ' for script and date, and none a surer knowledge 
of types — but it left him no leisure to write, even if he 
wanted to. Like Bradshaw, his hand is most clearly to be 
traced in other men's works, in Copinger, in Proctor, in 
Sayle ; and he was happy that it should be so, provided that 
the work was done and well done, for he was entirely devoid 
of even the most harmless vanity and of any touch of self- 
assertion. 

If readers of the Review want to know what he was like as 
Librarian, let them recall any occasion when they had a service 
or a favour to ask of him ; let them sound the Stall, for each 



Francis Jenkinson xiii 

of whom he had a real personal concern ; let them listen to 
what foreign visitors say of their host. Two French impres- 
sions must be quoted, one from M. Henri Omont, Keeper of 
the MSS. in Paris, the other from M. Paul Desjardins, of 
Pontigny. ' Les trop rares occasions qu'il m'a cte donnees 
de rencontrer M. Jenkinson m'avaient fait apprecier la 
noblesse de son caractere et la surete de son erudition. Quelle 
perte pour votre bibliotheque qu'il dirigeait en digne suc- 
ccsseur et continuateur du regrette Henry Bradshaw ! Les 
deux noms de ces deux grands bibliothecaires resteront a 
jamais etroitement unis ', and, ' De M. Jenkinson je garde 
une image rapide mais une idee distincte et durable. J'admire 
cet air d'innocence venerable des hommes qui se sont uses 
a purger la science d'erreurs et d'a peu pres. Je sais aussi 
que ce scrupuleux etait un cceur profond.' Jenkinson, for all 
his modesty, would not have refused to be saluted by strangers 
as the heir of Bradshaw, as an exact scholar and a man of 
feeling. 

It would be idle to say that the great improvement in the 
organization of the Library effected during his reign was due 
to his unaided effort. That was, he always maintained, the 
work of H. G. Aldis and his loyal staff — of Aldis, his dear 
friend and secretary, whose death in 1919 gave him a shock 
from which I do not think he ever recovered. But the work 
could not have been done without the co-operation and 
control of the librarian, and, as I have said, when administra- 
tion was needed, he rose to the occasion. Such seemed to 
offer itself with the War. Jenkinson at once foresaw the 
immense literature that was going to spring up, and he 
determined to collect it as it grew. He got into touch with 
Government departments and with soldiers upon every front. 
Whenever he read in the newspaper a letter from a resident 
abroad or a neutral favourable to our cause — in Latin America, 
Spain, Scandinavia — Jenkinson wrote to him and enlisted his 



xiv Francis Jenkinson 

services to procure pamphlets, manifestos, journals, and the 
like. The result is a mass of material which, though looked 
askant at by some who thought nothing less than manuscripts 
and incunabula worthy of the Librarian's attention, has 
notably enhanced the historical value of the great collection 
over which he presided and to which he was entirely devoted. 
If he ever came near a quarrel with any one, it was in 1901 
when, rightly or wrongly, he thought the interests of his 
beloved library were being attacked ; and he wrote a pungent 
fly-sheet (20 November). But however acute his feelings then, 
they softened with tiine, and it may safely be affirmed that 
he died in love and charity with all men. 

This brings me on to the hallowed ground of his personal 
character. He was the most lovable of men. Seldom angry 
himself and never without cause, no one could be angry with 
him. He was stern enough with wrongdoing or wilful 
stupidity, but once a fault confessed or repented, it was as 
though it had never been. Minor lapses, such as the mis- 
handling of a book (which threatened to attain majority if 
the book was a rare one) or the wrong phrasing of a musical 
passage, were corrected with a smile and a gesture that forbade 
grudging and smoothed ruffled feathers. It must be said that 
he was extremely fastidious and rarely suffered an error of 
taste to pass unchallenged ; but I do not believe he was ever 
consciously guilty of an unkind thought or action. Indeed 
unconscious simplicity, the innocence noted by the observant 
Frenchman, was what most distinguished him — the childlike 
character blessed in the Gospel. So his religion was simple, 
but profound and real. Never given to anxious speculation, 
he was content to trust where he could not be sure. His 
tender reverence for deep things is best known to those who 
have knelt beside him, or heard him read prayers, or watched 
his face during the singing of a hymn he liked — and there 
were some he did not like at all. 



Francis Jcnkinson xv 

His acts of chanty were countless, and It might perhaps be 
thought indiscriminate. No beggar was ever turned away by 
him unheard. He had a number of friends out of doors 
whose needs he was glad to relieve, but whose presence he 
sometimes fetched a circuit to avoid, lest he should have to 
hurt their feelings. He would never pass a child in trouble 
(children adored him) without trying to comfort it. One of 
the last things I saw him do was to bestow a cake of very 
especial coal-tar soap on a young tatterdemalion with an 
irritable skin. 

To descend to a lower level. He was a natural Conservative. 
At one time he came under the spell of Mr. Gladstone, but 
not for long. He did not favour Liberal politics, though he 
had many staunch friends among advanced Liberals. In 
academic matters he scrutinized very narrowly any project 
of reform, but he was by no means an habitual non-placet. 

He had his prejudices and his antipathies in the animal and 
vegetable kingdoms and elsewhere — the sparrow (or avian rat), 
Agrostis stolonifera (a peculiarly wicked squitch), blue-bottles 
and other bad flies, Irish rebels, the Siegfried Idyll, the 
Natural Law in the Spiritual World, Mill's Logic, The Epic 
of Hades, ' last evening ', ' very pleased ', ' quite all right ', 
' Foreword ', ' Offprint ', and all offences against pure English. 

No one could be wittier upon occasion, no one had a more 
refreshing sense of humour. His reading aloud of R. Bridges's 
Epitaph on a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal or Walter Head- 
lamps Private Oration is something to remember. He was not 
a raconteur, but he treasured a good story, and he wrote 
from his bed in hospital last month to the Stmday Times, 
correcting a wrong rendering of a ' Hicks of Bodmin '. 

He was, I suppose, what you call insular ; he spoke no_ 
foreign language, though, of course, he had a working know- 
ledge of many and could generally understand his continental 
guests. Tricks of French idiom amused him and he took 



xvi Francis Jenkinson 

peculiar pleasure in the noble appearance of a page of Spanish 
print. But circumstances rather than desire confined his 
movements to this country (including the islands, for Scilly 
was at one time his second home), and his visits abroad, to 
Switzerland or the Riviera, recalled with vividness and 
gratitude, could be counted on one hand. 

Despite a poor physique he loved sport and an out-of-door 
life. In earlier days he had been a fisherman and a good 
shot with gun and rifle ; he used to play tennis, with more 
zeal perhaps than success, in the Clare and Trinity Court, 
and since leaving College he practically lived in his garden 
when not in the Library. 

There is no doubt that for all the losses and sorrows which 
a man who reaches seventy years must endure, his life was 
a happy one, as it always is to those whose whole conversation 
is with things lovely and of good report. ' It was a comfort 
and delight to his friends ', one of them writes, and Cambridge 
will greatly miss the youthful figure in the grey hat, slipping 
along Trumpington Street and King's Parade, or threading 
his way home to Chaucer Road from the Library across the 
Fen, with many pauses, to catch a fly, to watch a bird, to pull 
up a weed, to talk with one of his numerous proteges, to 
collect bits of silver paper (a war habit), to stuff his pockets 
with oak leaves for his garden. 

True, we have Sargent's masterpiece to remind us of him ; 
but not even Sargent's pencil can convey all his charm and 
goodness. The thought that a generation will soon arise 
which can know him only by his picture teaches us how much 
more rich we are than they. For we at least know, and they 
can never know, what the world has lost with him and what 
a light has gone out in our sky.

GEORGE DUNN ^ 

A CORRESPONDENT writcs : 

On Tuesday of last week there died suddenly from pneu- 
monia, at the age of forty-seven, a man whose remarkable 
gifts and attainments deserve more than the few paragraphs 
of record that have appeared in the public press. Mr. George 
Dunn, of Woolley Hall, near Maidenhead, was a member 
of a well-known Northumbrian Catholic family. He was 
educated at Beaumont College, Windsor, and at Stonyhurst, 
and was afterwards called to the Bar, though he never practised 
as a barrister. Inheriting from his father, the late George 
Dunn, of Bath House, Newcastle, large estates both in 
Northumberland and Berkshire, together with suiHcient 
revenues, he was able to indulge the tastes of a scholar and 
collector of early printed books, mediaeval bindings, manu- 
scripts, old silver, and old clocks, as well as those of a sportsman 
and keen angler, an astronomer and a student of forestry. 
Of none of these things was he content to have a superficial 
knowledge. Indeed, it may be said that he handled nothing 
without mastering it completely. 

The incunabula of which he formed so splendid a collection 
were for the most part scarce volumes, little known or without 
the printer's names. He cared far less for the books already 
prized and described and understood by collectors, as these 
present few of the problems which it was his delight to solve, 
often at the expense of whole nights as well as days passed in 
his study. There was a time when he used to take the books

that baffled his researches to Robert Proctor, of the British 
Museum, whose erudition usually enabled him to clear up 
any difficulty. After Proctor's untimely death in 1903,' 
Mr. Dunn was compelled to pursue his investigations unaided, 
with the result that he became the best authority on the 
subject in England, and was appealed to for information by 
the officials of the British Museum and other great libraries. 
He succeeded Proctor as anonymous editor of the Type 
Facsimile Society's portfolios, and in 1899 and the following 
years he issued privately a series of full-sized photographs, 
taken by himself from the pages of upwards of four hundred 
fifteenth-century books in his collection, none of which had 
been previously reproduced. These ' WooUey photographs ' 
were distributed, through a bookseller, with a printed sum- 
mary (1905), and beyond their name, which conveyed little 
to the uninitiated, there was nothing to indicate their source 
or their editor. 

It is probable that Mr. Dunn's collection of mediaeval 
-bindings is the best now existing in private hands. Here 
again the attraction was the solving of problems as to the 
various ancient centres of binding by the comparison and 
classification of the stamps and the methods of sewing and of 
shaping the boards. In this way the discoveries of Mr. VV. H. J. 
VVeale, Mr. Gordon Duff, and Mr. Strickland Gibson were 
usefully supplemented. 

Mr. Dunn made an extensive collection of English legal 
manuscripts and documents, but the manuscripts for which 
he cared most were those of monastic provenance not later 
in date than the thirteenth century. He used to show favoured 
friends exquisitely written books of this period and earlier, 
bearing the library marks of St. Augustine's, Canterbury, of 
the Greyfriars of York, of Reading Abbey, Byland, Rievaulx, 
Citeaux, Vezelay, and other famous monasteries. At a sale 
at Christie's the acumen which had previously led to his 



George Dunn xix 

purchase for about £20 at Sotheby's of a complete production 
of the almost mythical press of Coster of Haarlem, Gutenberg's 
rival as the inventor of the art of printing, secured him for 
the same trifling sum the unique manuscript of the hitherto 
unknown ' Chancun de VVillame '. This prize he immediately 
transcribed himself and had two hundred copies handsomely 
printed. Many of these were then distributed anonymously 
through the bookseller already referred to. The poem, 3,553 
lines in length, was hailed by the astonished scholars of Europe 
and America as rivalling in importance the ' Chanson de 
Roland ', though they had no means of divining to what good 
fairy they and the world of letters were indebted for the gift, 
which this time did not even bear the cryptic name of 
VVoolley. 

It will be seen that Mr. Dunn was at as much pains to 
avoid fame as others are to seek it. The telescope at Woolley 
Hall was one of the finest in the world, and he himself took 
what were at the time the largest photographs ever taken of 
celestial bodies. Some of these photographs were shown at 
a meeting of the Royal Astronomical Society, and a vote of 
thanks was passed to ' the anonymous exhibitor ', whose 
identity was left a mystery. An expert with all manner of 
tools, he understood perfectly the varying mechanism of his 
eighty or more valuable old clocks, and invented a new kind 
of escapement. 

With these and other interests and pursuits, George Dunn 
lived a tranquil and sequestered life, unmarried and alone in 
a large house, where he occasionally entertained one or other 
of the small band of intimates to whom he was devoted and 
by whom he was beloved. Neatly dressed, shy, spare, 
and rather below the middle height, he might sometimes be 
seen entering the British Museum or the Bodleian Library, 
or quietly turning over the book treasures in the London 
sale-rooms. But he never attended meetings or went into 



XX George Dunn 

society, or gave the smallest encouragement to mere acquaint- 
ances. He was a Conservative in politics, a model landlord, 
and a loyal son of the Catholic Church. In an age of advertise- 
ment his charities and benefactions shared with the Woolley 
photographs, the ' Chancun de Willame ', and the photo- 
graphs of the stars the quality of anonymity. 

He was buried on Saturday at St. Thomas's, Fulham, the 
Requiem Mass being said by his brother, Mgr. Canon Dunn.

PREFACE 

AN effort has been made to make this Hst of characters 
published in the seventeenth century, their main 
period, fairly complete. Samuel Butler's characters 
are excluded by their date of publication, 1759. As the 
Controversial Characters are mainly of historical and not of 
literary interest they have been classed separately. The 
appendix includes books, other than character-books, which 
contain characters. 

I should be grateful for any addition to this list, or for 
any correction. 

I desire to offer my most sincere thanks to all who have 
helped me in my work ; to Dr. R. B. McKerrow for his 
continual kindness in discussing difficulties with me as they 
arose ; to Dr. W. W. Greg for his extremely kind help 
with the form of the work ; to the Staff of the British 
Museum Reading Room for their unfailing kindness, 
especially to Mr. A. Esdaile who helped me with many 
puzzles, and to Mr. A. I. Ellis, to whose interest and help 
I owe very much ; to the Staff of the Bodleian Library 
where, particularly through Mr. Strickland Gibson, my work 
was facilitated in every possible way.

Notes : l. The get-up of this book is particularly neat. Each page is set 
within double rules and the ornaments are attractive. 

2. Section title 2 is of the same setting as section title I, substituting ' Second ' 
for ' First', 'Vices ' for ' Vertues', and using a different ornament. 

3. The running title names the character on each page and gives also in the 
inner corner the word ' Char.' on the rectos, and ' Lib. i ' [2] on the versos. The 
' Char.' and ' Lib.' are printed on the blank pages, which are also numbered and 
ruled. A i blank is signed A.

and the page measures 16x11 cm. There are numerous marginal references

2. no. 32 is signed ' D. B.' and no. 33 is claimed by ' I. Cocke ' in the preface to 
the second ed. of Stephens's Characters, 161 5. 

3. No. 70, ' An excellent Actor ', probably contains a clue to the authorship of 
this group of 32 characters. It is a sympathetic picture of an actor, most likely 
of Richard Burbage, whose love of painting is noted ; but it contains a discon- 
nected passage directly and abusively attacking a ' Characterist ', who had called 
the players ' Rogues '. This writer was John Stephens, who had published, 
probably early in 1615, an unfriendly sketch of 'A common Player' in his 
* Characters '. A reply to this seems immediately to have been forthcoming in 
no. 70. Stephens seems to have retorted by rushing out at once a second 
edition (also in 161 5) of his Characters in which he used the prefatory matter for 
an elaborate attack upon * the actors' friend ' for his ' scurrilous retort '. He 
called his victim an ' unknown botcher ', but clearly hinted that he was connected

with the stage. Stephens answered the players' charge against him by declaring 
he had not meant to insult the London companies. The actors' friend omitted 
the passage in the next edition of the Overburian Characters [1616], and it was 
never reprinted. The passage is, ' Therefore the imitating Characterist was 
extreame idle in calling them Rogues. His Muse it seemes, with all his loud 
invocation, could not be wak't to light him a snuffe to read the Statute : for 
I would let his malicious ignorance understand, that Rogues are not to be 
imploide as maine ornaments to his Maiesties Reuels ; but the itch of bestriding 
the Presse, or getting vp on this wodden Pacolet, hath defiled more innocent 
paper the ever did Laxative Physicke : yet is their invention such tyred stuffe, 
that like Kentish Post-horse they can not go beyond their ordinary stage, should 
you flea them.' 

The point of interest in this active controversy is that the ' actors' friend ', the 
leader of one side, was probably the author of the last 32 characters. It was first 
suggested that this was John Webster by Mr. H. Dugdale Sykes in Notes and 
Queries y 1 1 Ser., vol. viii, Sept. 20th, 27th, Oct. 4th, nth, 1 913, and vol. xi, 
Ap. 24th, May ist, 2nd, 3rd, 1915. Baron A. F. Bourgeois independently 
made the same suggestion N. a7id Q., 11 Ser., vol. x, July 4th, 1914. Both 
writers give parallel passages between Webster's works and the 32 characters.

Notes: i. {j) is generally a line by line and page by page reprint of (z), the 
process being interrupted by the addition of ' A Dunce' on G 3-5 in {f)y which 
caused G 6^-1 8^ to be line by line only. 

2. The ' Dunce ' and the ' Essay ' are by John Donne, though no acknowledge- 
ment is made, here, or in any subsequent edition. They were reprinted as 
Donne's by his son in 1652. [See Appendix under Donne, ' Paradoxes . . .' 1652.] 

3. The B.M. copy has a portrait of Overbury inserted facing the title. This is 
a copy from the picture in the Bodleian gallery, to right : oval in rect. frame. 
'Aetatis suae 32' in upper part of oval. S. P. monogram, sc. [S. de Passe]. 
Line 3y^ x 2J* in. 5 lines of verse below. ' Laur : Lisle excud.' 

4. The title-page in the B.M. copy has been ruled in red ink, enclosing it within 
double rules, and following lines 1-6 and 9 by double rules and 1. 10 by a triple 
rule. The title has been mended, in the (?) i8th century, and the ruling on the 
mend suggests that the extra ruling was thus not contemporary. 

5. A few odd sentences and parts of sentences in MS. from four or five characters 
are bound in on a fly-leaf in ' Loiola ' 1648 (Bodl. 8<*. L. 4. Art. Bs). The characters 
thus used which are distinguishable are A very Woman, A Dunce, A Button- 
maker, A meere-Petyfogger.

Notes : i. a. The characters are misnumbered in the text and in the Table by 

misprinting nos. 34-54 as 33-53, and no. 50 in the text as 43. 

d. No. 19 is entitled (in the text) 'An idle Gallant', in the Bodl. copy. 

2. The watermark is in an unusual position in A and K which each consist 
of 4 leaves + 2 leaves, for it occurs on A 2 and on K3, at the top outer 
margins. 

3. In C there is a watermark near the top outer margin on C 7, C 8 and on C 12. 
In the Bodl. copy it is not on C 12.

The 'irregular ' settings in (a), (b), (c). 

In A. There are two settings of A, A 2, A 3^, A 4, A 4", A 5, A 5^, A 6, one of 
(a) and one of (i) and (c). But of A 2^, A3 there is one setting of (^r) and one of 
(d) and (a). 

Note : In the Bodl. copy there is one setting of A 3"^ in (a) and (c). 
In E. There is one setting of the following pages in (d) and (c), E 12^, E 3, 
E 10'^, E 5, E 8^. The remaining pages of the outer forme are of three settings 
in the three editions. 

In H. There are three settings of 19 pages in (a), {b), (f), but of 6 pages there are 
two settings, one of {c), and one of (a) and (b), namely of H 2\ H 3, H 6^, H 7 
and of H 4, H 6. 

In I. There is one setting of half of the inner forme of {a), (b), and (c), namely 
of 1 4, 9^, 5^, 8, 6, 7^ in {b) and (c) corresponding to I 6, 11^, 7^, 10, 8, 9^ in (a). 
But in I 9^ of (b) and (c) compared with I 11'^ of (a), the rule and the title of ' no. 
52 ' and the two lines following are of two settings, one for {a) and one for (b) and 
(c). In the other half of this forme there are two settings, one of (a) and one of 
{b) and {c). 

In K. K 3-5 in (b) and K 3^-5^ in (a) corresponded, allowing for a regular 
divergence of 3 lines on each page [21 lines in a page]. There is one setting of 
{a) and (b) of these pages with the exception of K 4 in (b). The details are : 
"Lines 1-3 are set up independently of ((;:)•

3- The order of the editions (a), (5), (c). 

It is readily apparent that (a) stands by itself, and that (d) and (c) form a separate 
group. About a dozen striking additions and three omissions could be quoted 
to show the improvements made in (d) and (c) over (a). 

Further examination shows that (d) is the second edition, and (c) the third. 
Three examples of the evidence follow : 

(i) There are a few places in (c) in which there are a group of careless spellings, 
e. g. on C 5'^'-6, otherwise the tendency is for B's errors in spelling and punctua- 
tion to be corrected in (t), e.g. H lo, 'Aturney', 'Lawer' in {d) become 
'Atturney', 'Lawyer' in (^r). 

(2) On H 6 in (d) and H 8 in (n) occurs the phrase ' of | Preachers Lecturers,' : in 
(c) a comma is inserted after * Preachers ', improving the sense. 

(3) A Pot-Poet. On F 2 in (a) ' His verses, ... or the firing of a house furnish 
him with argument, . . . and Melpomine cryes, Fire, Fire. He is a man now 
much imploy'd in commendations of our Navy, and a bit-|ter inveigher 
against the Spaniard '. 

In (i), on E ID. ' His verses ... or the burning of a house . . . and Melpomine 

cryes Fire, Fire, Nts other Poems are but Briefs in Rime, and like the poore 

Greekes collections to redeeme from captivity. He is a man now much imploy'd 

in commendations-| of our Navy, and a bitjter inveigher.' 

The words in italic were added to (b) : they neatly make the transition — which 

before was abrupt — between the private and public subjects of the poems of the 

Pot-Poet. In 1. 8 {b) misprinted a comma for a period after ' Fire '. In 1. 14 (/^) 

wrongly transferred the hyphen from bit-|ter to the end of ' commendations ' 

which occurred over ' bit'| in the line above. 

(<£■) reprinted (<5), and corrected the hyphen in 1. 14, though not the comma in

1630 



d. Additions are made to improve the text on 5 pages, e. g. on B 7', (/) adds 
' by whom' in ' The Lawier is the onely man he hinders, by whom he is spited 
for taking up quarrels '. 

e. A new character begins on F 5, 3 lines lower than usual. From F 6, 3 lines 
are omitted, namely ' And very scandalous hee is in his authoritie for no sin 
almost which he will not commit '. These lines are printed in italic in {e), but in 
roman in {a), {b), (t). This omission was probably the author's correction. 
Was there harm in the reflection upon the office of the Upstart Knight ? Did 
Earle intend to make the omission in 1628, and was his direction to do so mis- 
understood by the printer who in 1629 in {e) made the sentence only more 
noticeable by italics ? The sentence was not reprinted until Arber printed his 
edition of Earle from {b). In 18 11 Bliss affected to quote the omitted sentence 
in a note, but he gives ' This authority of his is that club which keeps them under 
as his dogs hereafter. First edit.' This note is repeated by Morley 1891, and 
in the Temple Classics edition 1899. The sentence Bliss quotes occurs in none 
of the editions I have seen. Could it have been in the missing fourth edition ?

three places [I 4"^'-l2, K^-li, L 9-M 3 in (/)], where space had been 'wasted' 
in (/) [on I 4^, K 2, L 10]. It seems as if the printer of {g) wanted to get his 
text into the same number of leaves — i. e. to N 12 — and filling these spaces two 
leaves were left at the end, into which the additional character was put. 

5. K 2 — no. 52— has as a catchword, ' 52 A at'. Only ' at ' is required.

2. a. The list of Contents corrects (r)'s numeration, but omits ' An Herald' from

2. D 8^, F 11^ are paged (64, 118) in the inner margin. 

3. The characters are misnumbered as 77 both in the table and in the text, mis- 
printing 44-51 as 45-52, 56-7 as 57-8, 58-72 as 60-74, 73-4 as 76-7 in the table, 
and in the text as in (a), except that 39 is correct and 51 is misprinted as 52, 
then as in the table. 

4. William Shears's connexion with the Character-Writings is interesting. He 
published these two editions [(a), (d)] of Earle in 1650, going back to what he 
may have taken as the first edition or perhaps as early a one as he could find. 
Compare, too, his edition of Overbury in 1655, which is a reissue of the 12th 
edition of 1626.

Hunter MS. no. 13c in Durham Cathedral Library. 

An account of this is given by the Rev. J. T. Fowler in Notes and Queries^ 
4th sen. vols. S and 9, 1S71-2. He says the MS. contains 46 characters, of which 
3 differ considerably from their printed versions, namely ' A Gallant ', ' A Herald ', 
and 'A Baker'. These 3 are printed from the MS. in [q)^ (r), {$). 

The Bright MS. 

Dr. Bliss copied 3 characters from this into his own copy of his edition of Earle 
in 181 1 (now in the Bodleian\ namely *A Gallant', a 'Weak man', and 
a 'Sceptick in religion '. I have not yet been able to trace this MS. 

B.]\I. Stowe 962. 

'A collection of poetry of the time of James I and Charles I. Paper: fT. 254, 
XVHth centur}'. Quarto.' 

On ft. 21-9 occur 13 of Earle's characters, regarded in the MS. as Donne's and 
followed in this by the catalogue of the Stowe MSS., for fol. 19 is headed 
' Characters of John Done', his ' Dunce' follows, and then the pieces by Earle 
which on fol. 31, in the list of contents headed ' Characters ', are given as Donne's. 
The B.M. catalogue now describes the 13 characters as Earle's. They are, I, 
2,3, 5> 7, S, 69, 9, 54, II, 12, 13, 15. 

Note : There are many slight discrepancies and errors between the text given 
in this MS. and that of {a) or {b). So that, as regards Earle, Prof. Grierson's 
verdict on the Donne portion, ' inaccurate', also holds true. He dates the MS. 
'not before 1630'.

about Lenton, of whom hardly anything appears to be known. For 'J.C 
writes : ' The Authour of these characters dying suddenly, left them in my 
Custody ; and for that in my weake Judgement they are to be preferred before 
(or at least to equall) others of this kinde : I thought not fit to let them dye 
with him ; but adventured to let them see the world under your Protection : 
If they live, his Memory may live with them, and I have my Designe ; if 
otherwise, their Fate cannot be so disastrous as his was.'

Notes: i. No, [i] discusses the relation of characters to 'Pourtracts' and 
Essays. 

2. The characters are each a page in length, and the number of the page, printed 
in the middle, serves as the number of the character. In nos. 48, 62 in the B.M. 
copy the end of the character is printed in smaller type to get it into the page. 

3. The ' Postscript ' states, ' I pass then my Thoughts through finer and finer 
Sieves of first Writing, then Printing, and lastly Reprinting them before I have 
done with them '. This is quite true. Flecknoe is very fond of rewriting his 
characters. Those reprinted here are mostly shortened. 

4. ' Of an Epicure ' (K 4) had been first printed in 1669 (' Epigrams of all Sorts ', 
B 5^), and reprinted in 1670 (' Epigrams of all Sorts . . .', D 7).

Notes: i. The running-title throughout the dedication is 'To The Reader', 
throughout the text it is ' Essayes and Characters'. On B 3\ 03'^, D 3'^, £2^ 
occurs the misspelling ' Charecterrs'. Cf. 1642 'A Map of the Microcosme ', 
note I. 

2. In rather unusual fashion L. G. tells the reader he has not ' reflected upon any 
particular Person, save only in the Character of a Scandalous Minister, . . . whom 
I had some cause to know in the Country ' (A 4^).

Notes: The story of this book seems to be a story of cancels. It is in the 
main a translation from Earle, and in part from Overbury and from Flecknoe. 
Some of the cancels may have been connected with the late addition of an

*7 leaves. The first three are loose, and pasted i on to 2, 2 on to 3, 3 on to 4. 

* 4 and 9 are conjugate. * 7 and 8 seem to have been conjugate, for the large 
clear watermarks in their top outer corners fit into one another and the chain 
lines correspond, but the leaves are here separated, 8 being attached to the stub 
conjugate with 7. 

* 5-6. On 6^ the catchword is ' Pre- ', which was intended to be followed by * 7, 
' Preface ', but these leaves containing a character-sketch (probably original) 
were removed from the preliminaries and transferred to the end of the book. 

A. It is most likely that the 15 leaves in A are represented by the formula 
12 — 3 + 6. The last 6 leaves form a group by structure, and also by subject, for 
they contain 3 characters, nos. 7, 8, 9, for which I have not yet found a source. 
A I is * loose ' and pasted on to A 2. 

Stubs conjugate with A 2-3 are pasted on to A 9^. A3 is not signed. 
A 6 is pasted to a stub conjugate with A 7, and in the B.M. copy is also pasted 
inside a strip of paper which encloses A 7 as well. A 7 is a cancel. Its paper is 
thicker than that of A 6, and it is unsigned. 

B. B 1-4 are separate leaves. B I is a cancel. It is pasted to a stub conjugate 
with B 12, and it is also slightly attached to A 15. In the Bodl. copy B i seems 
to be barely pasted only to A 15. 

B 2 is pasted to a stub conjugate with B 9. On to this stub is pasted a stub 

conjugate with Bio, and on to this, in the Bodl. copy, is pasted a stub conjugate 

with B 12. 

B 3 is pasted to B 4. 

B 4 is pasted to B 5. It is misnumbered 30 for 31. 

B II is missing in the B.M copy, but an MS. transcript from the Bodl. copy is 

supplied. B II, in the Bodl. copy, is pasted on to B 10. 

C. C 8 seems a cancel. It is of * thick ' paper, and is pasted to the stub conju- 
gate with C5. 

C 10 similarly is of 'thick ' paper, and is pasted to the stub conjugate with C 3. 
In the Bodl. copy traces of the end-letters of the page that was removed remain 
on the stub, and these correspond with the end-letters of the cancel-page now in 
position. Similar traces are to be found on the stubs pasted on to G 4'*' and K 3 . 

D. D 3 is a cancel. Its paper is ' thick ' and it is pasted to D 4. 

A stub conjugate with D 10 is pasted on to D 11^. In the Bodl. copy this stub 
is pasted on to D 3. 

D II is a cancel. Its paper is 'thick ', and it is pasted on to a stub conjugate 
with D 2. 

E. E 3 is a cancel. It has 23 instead of the usual 24 lines, and it is pasted to 
a stub conjugate with D 10. 

G. G I is pasted to G 2, so neatly, in both copies, that they appear on the recto 

to be conjugate. 

On G I are pasted the two stubs conjugate with Gil and 12. Both these leaves 

are of ' thick ' paper. 

G 4 is a cancel. It is pasted to the stub of G 9. In the Bodl. copy a few traces 

of the end-letters of the original page remain on the stub, and these seem to 

agree with the corresponding letters of the cancel page, see lines 1-3. 

H. H I is pasted to a stub conjugate with H 11. In the Bodl. copy the stub 

conjugate with H 10 is also attached to H i. 

80 



H 2 is pasted to a stub conjugate with H lo in the B.M. copy. In the Bod. 

copy H 2 is pasted in, barely, between H i^ and H 3. 

H 3 and 4 are conjugate with H 8 and 7. 

H 5 and 6 are conjugate. The stitching is between them. 

H 9 is pasted on to H 8^. 

H 12 is ' loose ', and in the B.M. copy it is partly stuck on to I I. It has 23 

lines. In the Hodl. copy it is stuck on to H 1 1^. 

1. I 2, in the B.M. copy is pasted to a strip of paper which also encloses I 11. 
In the Bodl. copy, I 2 is stuck on to I 3. The stub conjugate with I 3 is pasted 
to I 11^, which has thus two stubs visible on its verso in the B.M. copy, but one 
stub in the Bodl. copy. 

I 5 is a cancel. It has a watermark at its top inner margin, and in the B.M. 

copy it is pasted to a stub conjugate with I 7, and to this stub is pasted a second 

stub conjugate with I 8. In the Bodl. copy it is pasted to a stub conjugate with I 8. 

In the B.M. copy, I 6 is pasted to I 7. It is not signed, and seems a cancel. 

The stitching is between I 5-6. In the Bodl. copy I 6 is pasted to a stub 

conjugate with I 7. 

I 10 is ' loose ', and pasted on to I 1 1. 

I II is a cancel. I ii^ is set lower than usual. It is attached to I 3 and 2, as 

stated above, in the B.M. copy. It is attached to I 3 in the Bodl. copy. 

K. On K3 are 4 stubs; the outer (4th) belongs to K 10, the third to K9, the 

second to K8, the first to K 7. In the B.M. copy these 4 stubs are visible on 

K 3\ In the Bodl. copy 2 are visible, though 4 are found on examination. 

Traces of end-letters in lines 1-8 clearly show that the cancel-page and the 

original K 3^ corresponded, at least for these 8 lines. K 4, 5, 6 are three separate 

leaves, and pasted, K 4 on K 5, K 5 on K 6, and K 6 on K 7. 

K 3-6 appear to be cancels. 

L. L I is a cancel. It is pasted to the stub conjugate with L 12. It is not 

signed ; its page number (241) is on the inner margin ; its printing is perhaps 

especially careless. 

L 4 is a cancel. It is pasted to the stub conjugate with L 9. In the B.M. copy 

some of the end-letters of the cancelled page are left on the stub, 6 being readable. 

M. M 6-7. In the B.M. copy these two separate leaves are pasted to a strip of 

paper. The join between M 6^-7 is almost imperceptible, but the paper of M 6 

is the thicker, and shows it to be the cancel. 

In the Bodl. copy, M 6 is pasted on to the stub conjugate with M 7 ; M 7 has 

a ' shrivelled ' look, and is the thicker, 

2, Title-cancels and slip-cancels. 

Four titles were changed, probably by the printer, who pasted slips over the 

original titles, and three blank slips were used to cancel portions of the text. 

The British Museum and the Bodleian authorities kindly had these lifted from 

their copies, with the following results : 

(i) The slip ' Un Cicaneur ' was pasted over ' Un Procureur ' (A 9, p. 17). 

(2 and 3) The slip ' Vn Certain Escolier ' was pasted over ' Le Jeune Gentilhomme 

de rUniversite '. This had a second slip of blank paper under the printed slip, 

to conceal the longer title it was wished to cancel. 

(4) The slip 'Un Valet de Chambre debauche ' was pasted over 'V° ^alet de 

Chambi":', in the B.M. copy; the printing of the original title was normal in 

the Bodl. copy (C. 9, p. 65). 

81 F 



(5) A blank slip occurred at the top of D 4 (p. 79). The character beginning on 
this page was set too low, and, in the B.M. copy, the slip covered a rule which 
did not seem to be needed in this copy. But in the Bodl. copy the slip covered 
the words ' tourne nous nous enpouvons rire, sans choger la nature '. These 
words are unconnected with the previous character. 

(6 and 7) The slip ' Paphlagonie ' was pasted over ' Normandie ' in ' Le Cadet 
de Normandie'. A second blank slip was used here also (D 10^, p. 92). 

(8) A blank slip was pasted over the last three lines on I 9^ (p. 210). 

(9) A blank slip was pasted over the last paragraph (of 5 lines) of 'Vn 
Operateur' (K i^, p. 218). 

[Note: In the Bodl. copy, the covering slips have been pasted now underneath 
the original title with due notification. In the B.M. copy these slips have been 
left floating, attached at one end, in their original position. 

3. In the Bodl. copy I 5-7 and L 5-7 are curiously related. 
L 5, beginning at 1. 4, reprints I 5 (1, 2). 

L 5^ reprints 15^. 

L 6 reprints the first 17 lines of I 6. 

L6^. The last 10 lines on this page are reprinted from the last 10 of I 6*. 

L 7 is of the same setting as I 7. 

4. Both copies are in the original vellum binding. 

5. Authorship. 

' Mons. [James] Dymocke Anglois ' [d. ? 1718, Catholic divine] states * j'ay escrit 
cette petite piece ', to defend the English nation from recent aspersions on their 
character and wit. 'Jepresente', he continues, 'une Geographic . du petit monde 
nouvellement decouvert par les Voyageurs de nostre nation. Dans ces cartes 
Micro-cosmographiques, ils pourront voir la facilite du genie Anglois dans une 

Raillerie Spirituelle ' This sentence might be taken to refer to Earle's ' Micro- 

cosmographie ', though Dymocke nowhere suggests that ' Le Vice Ridicule ' is 
a translation, nor does he give any indication of his other sources, Overbury and 
Flecknoe. He rather implies the work is his own, 'je n'ay vise a aucun en 
particulier ', and * mon style est extrement court & precis, I'ayant ainssy choisy 
comme le plus propre pour mon dessein '.

3. ,, „ the Country. 7. A „ Souldier. 

4. „ „ among the Clergy. 8. A „ Sailor. 

Notes: i. It is obvious that this character and the 'Jacobite' are connected. 
The aim of both pieces was to present the Williamites favourably. The hostile 
account of a 'Jacobite' serves, then, as the starting-point for this sympathetic 
sketch of a Williamite, ' having nothing in Nature that hates him besides the 
Devil and a Jacobite '. The printer was probably the same for both characters, 
for the type is similar, the paper identical, and the unusual make-up of the two 
books alike. 

2. Matter was probably suppressed here too, but the irregularity is even less 
discreetly concealed, for : 

a. C 2-4, D 2V-E I and v. are in larger type than the rest. 

b. There is a gap in the sense between C 4^ and D i. 

It may also be noted that C 4^ is paged 22, D i, 25 : C 4^ alone has no 
catchword in this book : the first word of the sentence at the top of D i is not 
indented, and the sentence seems to be the end of a paragraph. 

3. There are some turned commas again, in this book. 

4. W occurs throughout the larger type.

[i] A Puritane. [2] A Round-head [verse]. [3] An Holy Sister [verse]. 

Notes: i. I owe to Miss A. E. Parsons the information that according to the 
catalogue of the Wrenn Library in the University of Texas this pamphlet 
was attributed to William Chamberlayne of Shaftesbury by the late Mr. George 
Aitken, but that his notes on its history have been mislaid. 
It does not seem likely that the three pieces in the pamphlet were written 
by one author. But, as happened often in these seventeenth-century pamphlets, 
the contents were a compilation from various unacknowledged sources. Here 
the joins seem obvious. For the prose piece concludes ' And thus having 
shevvn you K. James his opinion of these kind of creatures, ... in Prose; 
please you to see the character of them, though under another notion, in 
Verse ; it is, as followeth '. Then comes ' The Round-Heads Character ' 
[printed in italic], which is more vigorously written than the feeble ' Holy-Sister' 
which the (?) compiler ' adjoines ' ' because you seldome or neuer can meet a 
Puritan or a Round-Head without a holy sister '. 

98 



2. The brief character of a ' Puritane' is constructed by the writer of the prose 
piece 'out of K. James' as he tells us himself. He quotes the basis of his 
sketch ['. . . these Puritanes, the very pests ', etc.] from Book II of the Basilicon 
Doron [from the 1603 Edinburgh edition or subsequently]. King James's words, 
of course, do not form a character as they stand. 

3. The 'Holy-Sister' is reprinted in 1682, vide under 'Wit and Loyalty 
Reviv'd . . .' pp. 149-50. 

4. The piece is dated by Thomason 'Aug: 23'.

Notes : Two of the writer's comments are interesting. He first neatly discusses 
' a character ',...* according to the Nature of it, writes much matter in a little 
roome, and time. 'Tis a curious Pencill, that can delineate the loveliest beauty 
in a little Table. And truely I am sorry that this Tablet should be painted with 
. . . this Ethiopian Liquor :' 

Then comes one of the rare references these character-writers make to one 
another, ' I have observed many that write Characters, as Overbury, Curere, 
Shelton, &c' (A 2^). That '&c. ' is as tantalizing as the two (.') unknown names 
preceding it.

2. A 'Tailor' is introduced as Overbury's, but the latter's responsibility for the 
main part of the ' Canting Rogue ' is not acknowledged, nor is Harman referred 
to on pp. 133-9. 

3. Kirkman tells us (in vol. I, part I, A 4-B 4) that Head refused to wTite 
a second part because of ' the ignominy' he had reaped ' by writing the first ', 
and that finally he (Kirkman) continued the work himself. The Prefaces to 
Parts 3 and 4 are signed 'Richard Head./Fra Kirkman', and affirm 'we have 
equally club'd to its Composition'. However, in his ' Proteus ', Head expressly 
denies that he was concerned in any part but the first, of the ' English 
Rogue '. 

4. There were many subsequent reprints and adaptations of the English 
Rogue. The B.M. has, in addition to the above, 3 of the editions containing 
characters, 1680 (parts i and 2), 1786, and 1874. The Bodl. has the editions of

Notes: i. The structure of this book as a whole has been influenced by the 
character-form. And in its discussion of the various types of wheedlers, there 
are a number of character-sketches, which form part of the ordinary text and 
are not printed separately as the few characters in the ' English Rogue ' 
had been. 

2. There is much unacknowledged borrowing from Earle, for instance about 
one-third of no. 15 is from Earle's Attorney ; the quotations are used as a kind 
of framework whose different sections are expanded at will.

Notes: i. Cowley's satire was the object of the publication, Berkenhead's 
and Butler's works being introduced merely as ' good company '. The satire, 
* The Puritan and the Papist ', which has been accepted as Cowley's by the 
late Mr. A. R. Waller (in the Cambridge English Classics edition of Cowley's 
English Writings) was followed in this 1682 edition by 'The Character of an 
Holy Sister '. This was not included in the 1 643 edition of the satire. There 
is no evidence, external or internal, that this weak piece is by Cowley, and in 
reprinting the satire, Mr. Waller omitted it. [See 1642, 'A Puritane Set 
forth . . .']

PREFACE 

The sources known to me, out of which an account of 
the Librafy of Peterborough Abbey can be constructed, are 
these : 

a. Lists of books bequeathed to the Abbey. These are to be 
found (i) in the list of gifts of bishop -^thelwold (1984) 
of Winchester, formerly Abbot of Peterborough : printed from 
the MS. chartulary belonging to the Society of Antiquaries 
(No. 60) in the Monasticon^ i. 382. (ii) In the lives of the succes- 
sive abbots from Benedict (t 1 194) to Nicholas Elmstow (ti396) ' 
in Whittlesey's History of the Ahhey^ extracted by Gunton and 
printed in full by Sparke. 

From these we recover the titles of a little over 220 volumes, 
but many of these are service-books. 

h. Ancient catalogues. Of these there are two : (i) in MS. 
Bodley 163 (Bede's Historia ecclesiasticd). It has been printed 
several times, by Pauli in Neues Archiv ii (1876), 433, and 
hence in the Serapeum xxxviii (1877), 120, and by Becker in 
his Catalogs No. 96: see also Gottlieb, i7(?i^^r Mittelalt. Bibliotheken^ 
515. It is of cent. XII, early, and contains about 70 titles. It 
is anonymous in the MS., but coincidences with the other 
documents in the case have made me sure that it must be 
attributed to Peterborough. 

(ii) In a MS. among the Peterborough muniments (now in the 
Chapter Library). Printed by Gunton in his History, and copied 
and collated with the original by myself in 1908. A reprint of 
Gunton's text is in the Serapeum (xii, xiii : 185 1-2). It is a 

^ Whittlesey stops in 1338 : for liie later Abbots Gunton does not mention 
his source. 



8 List of Manuscripts formerly in 

tall narrow book of 28 leaves of paper and vellum (i i ^ x 4I in.) 
in two gatherings of 14 leaves each, and I take it to date from 
late in the xivth century. The contents are : 

Matricularium librarie monasterii Burgi Sancti Petri paucis 
libris non examinatis. 

The catalogue ends on f. 19''. Then follows without break 
matter occupying the rest of the page, probably in the same 
hand : Qualiter agitur cum iustus in extremis agit. Angelus 
sui custos cum multitudine angelorum venit et animam eius 
de carcere corporis tollit et cum maxime et dulcissime melodie 
cantu et cum immenso lumine ac iucundissimo odore ad celeste 
perducit palatium in spiritualem paradisum. . . . 

endinof : talis est mutacio dextere excelsi 
Qualiter agiturcum impms ni extremis agit. Cum autem im- 
pius in extremis agit veniunt demones cum maximo strepitu. . . . 

ending : dolor horrende visiones, etc. (.'') in ixf fo. script. 

At top of f. 20 is : Sepe recorderis bone frater quod morieris. 

Then : Liber de arte moriendi.' 

This, it seems, is in a different hand. Beginning : 

Cum de presentis exilii miseria transitus mortis propter 
moriendi impericiam multum non solum laicis verum etiam 
religiosis atque deuotis difficilis . . . orationes dicendos super 
agonizantes ab aliquo assistencium. 

These are in six particulae. The first begins : 

Cum omnium terribilium mors corporis terribilissima sit. 

They end f. 28"*: ut in pace sit locus tuus et habitacio tua 
in ierusalem celesti, per eundem. Explicit liber de arte mo- 
riendi. 

On f. 28^ at top are some verses : 

Demon. Hanc animam posco quia plenam crimine nosco. 

Angelus. Hie si peccauit nece pressus opem rogitauit. 

Anima. O spes in morte me solue maria precor te. 

^ By Matthew of Krakau ? See Royal MS. 8. B. xvi. 



Peterborough Abbey Library 9 

Maria. De qua suxisti fili veniam precor isti. 
Filius Dei. Wlnere queso pater [da ?] quod rogitat mea mater. 
Pater. Nate petita dabo quod vis volo [nulla ?] negabo. 

Angelus. Aspice peccator vbi filius est mediator 

Pro precibus matris qualis est responsio patris. 
Non prius in dulcem declines lumina sompnum 
Omnia quam longi reputaueris acta diei. 
Then, in the hand of f. 19'', follows the continuation of 
the text there begun. It is followed by a paragraph De generali 
iudicio, ending : erubescet luna. Require in 4° fo. ante matri- 
cular(ium). But nothing now precedes the Matricularium. 

c. A short list of books (15) seen by Leland at Peterborough 
shortly before the Dissolution : printed in his Collectanea^ iv. 31. 

d. The extant books which can be identified as having 
belonged to the library in medieval times. 

From what has been said it will be apparent that the most 
copious source of information is the Matricularium preserved 
at Peterborough, occupying as it does some 38 pages in the 
MS., and containing entries of 346 separate volumes. A discus- 
sion of its character and of the principle on which it is arranged 
will therefore be a proper preliminary to making any use of it. 
And at the outset I remark that t)\t format ^n<\ material of the 
book suggest that it can hardly be the official catalogue drawn 
up for use in the library. Examples of such official catalogues 
we have, e. g. in those of Dover Priory ; St. Augustine's, 
Canterbury ; the Austin Friars of York ; Leicester Abbey ; 
Sion Monastery, all of them much more carefully and better 
written books than ours, the aspect of which at once suggests 
that it was made for private use. 

We proceed to examine the arrangement of the catalogue, and 
find it to be quite systematic. The volumes are arranged under 
a series of alphabets of 23 letters (A-Z, omitting J, V, W). 
Each letter of the first alphabet has a single dot after it ; each 
letter of the second has two dots ; each of the third, three ; the 



lo List of Manuscripts formerly in 

fourth has the numeral IV attached to each letter, and so 
on with V, VI, etc., up to XVI ; but this last alphabet is incom- 
plete, only going down to letter C. Thus we ought to find 
23 X 15 + 3 entries = 348 ; but irregularities or errors reduce 
the number to 346. 

Then we look at the contents : and here we are surprised to 
find that a great many of the works which form the staple of 
ordinary monastic libraries are wholly absent from the list. 
Not only so, but when we turn to the bequests of the abbots, 
we find among them many of these ordinary books, which yet 
make no appearance in our catalogue. By ordinary books 
1 mean Bibles, glossed books of the Bible, Augustine on the 
Psalms, and on the Trinity, Gregory's Moralia, the Sentences, 
the Sunima of Aquinas, the Decretum of Gratian, the Digest : 
you will be hard put to it to prove from this catalogue that 
Peterborough Abbey owned any of these or scores of others 
which one could readily name. 

I have made two Indexes, one to the Matricularium, the other 
to the remaining documents ; and a glance at them will prove 
my point to demonstration. 

The question then arises : Is this in some sort a supple- 
mentary catalogue which designedly omits the large treatises and 
only records those of smaller compass ? and there are two 
phenomena which point to an affirmative answer. One is 
in the catalogue itself. There are several entries which are 
plainly incomplete as they stand. No. 24 (C. 2), Retractationes 
Bede de quibusdam questionibus precedentis tractatus ; No. 83 
(Q. IV), ^//WPsalterium de beata Virgine ; No. 175 (Q. VIII), 
Tractatus eiusdem de confessione ; and again, No. 124 (L. VI), 
Liber de arte poetica, Sermon es eiusdem^ Epistole eiusdem ; 
No. 2^^ (O. 2), Liber Penitentialis iti fine ; No. 218 (N. X), 
Numerale in tribus quaternionibus sequentibus. Such phrases 
show that part of the document which was being copied has 
been omitted : they do not prove that this was done designedly. 



Peterborough Abbey Library n 

The other phenomenon, however, does seem to show that. It 
is the evidence of extant books. 

No. 23 (B. 2) in the catalogue runs thus : 

Beda super Tobiam. 
„ super triginta questiones de libris Regum. 
„ super canticum Abacuc. 
„ de templo Salomonis. 

Augustinus contra quinque hereses, 

Sermo Augustini de muliere forti. 

leronymus super Ecclesiasten. 

Tractatus Ernulfi Episcopi Roffensis de incestuosis coniugiis. 

Now these are the exact contents of MS. Lambeth, 191 : only, 
the first, and longest, article in that MS. is Beda super parabolas 
Salomonis. Again, No. 3 (C. i) gives : 

Pastorale Ambrosii. 

Questio leronimi de induracione cordis Pharaonis et de aliis 
quatuor questionibus. 

Item de xv signis ante diem iudicii. 
And the Eton MS. 21 has exactly these articles, but pre- 
ceded by Jerome on Daniel and the twelve Prophets, which 
occupies 323 leaves out of a total of 338. Be it noted also 
that the tract of Ernulf and * Jerome ' on the hardness of 
Pharaoh's heart are both uncommon texts, especially the latter. 

A third instance is afforded by the Helmingham MS. No. 6 
which begins with Rabanus on Genesis (a long book), and 
proceeds with the smaller tracts which are catalogued under 
No. 36 (P. 2). 

Again, one of the gifts of Abbot Robert de Sutton (d. 1274) 
was Vita S. Thomae et S, Oswaldi versifice ; and No. 84 
(K. IV) begins with Vita S. Oswaldi versifice. It has other 
items, but this makes no real difficulty, for the notes of the 
abbots' bequests are obviously made as brief as is consistent 
with clearness. 

Returning from this evidence to the catalogue, we find many 



12 List of Manuscripts formerly in 

entries which can hardly represent the contents of complete 
volumes : e. g. No. 47 (C. 3), Litera que sic incipit ; Hugoni 
S. Victoris Priori ; No. 54 (K. 3), Edilnulphus [sic] de monachis, 
i. e. the rather short poem of Ethelwulf. (This may, perhaps, 
represent MS. Bodley 163, in which Ethelwulf's poem follows 
Bede's History.) No. 120 (G. VI), Paruus tractatus inter de- 
fensorem et accusatorem ; No. 251 (Z. XI), Tractatus Ratriani 
(Ratramni) de eo quod Christus natus est de Virgine (a quite 
short text) ; and so on. Moreover, to any one who is accustomed 
to dealing with MSS., many examples will occur of tracts com- 
mencing entries which it is not usual to find in that position : 
No. 10 (M. i), Chrysostom on the Episde to the Hebrews 
would almost certainly be preceded by the Opus imperfectum on 
Matthew ; No. 25 (D. 2), Bede on Nehemiah, would be preceded 
by Bede on Ezra ; No. 42 (X. 2), the letter of Alexander to 
Aristotle would have either the Gesta Alexandria or Orosius, 
before it. 

These considerations taken together have convinced me that 
the principal object which thecompiler of this catalogue had before 
him was to record the smaller and subsidiary contents of the 
volumes in the library, omitting the long treatises which in many 
cases filled whole volumes or formed the main part of them. 
The title of his work allows, indeed, for some omissions, in the 
words ' paucis libris non examinatis '. But like most amateurs, 
he is not consistent in his practice. He does not always leave 
out the first item in the book ; his entries. No. 2 (B. i) and 
No. 14 (Q. i), seem to give the whole contents of two volumes, 
the first of which is named in Bodl. 163, and the other seems 
clearly to be identical with Lambeth 202. And in a good many 
other cases, especially perhaps in the later part of his work, 
his entries appear to be full. No. 342 (Y. XV), which I identify 
with Gonville and Caius MS. 437, is an instance. 

It is a real objection to this view that the numbering of the 
books in their sixteen alphabets is consecutive, and allows no 



Peterborough Abbey Libraiy 13 

room for the many volumes which contained single treatises. 
Against this must be set the fact — I believe it to be a fact — 
that no volume can be produced in which a press-mark corre- 
sponding to our catalogue is entered ; nor, indeed, is a Peter- 
borough press-mark of any kind known to me. One legitimate 
inference from this is that the alphabet system of our catalogue 
was invented by the compiler of it for his own convenience ; 
another, less likely, that it was a system which did not include 
any volume which contained only a single treatise. 

It is not easy to gather from the Matricularium a clear idea of 
the arrangement of the library. This is not surprising if my 
theory of its character is correct ; for we well know how little 
the medieval people cared about preserving uniformity of com- 
plexion in the contents of their books. Tracts of the most 
diverse kinds might be collected in one volume, consideration 
being only had to their bulk and not to their subject. How- 
ever, as we look through the pages of the book, some grouping 
does seem to emerge. 

We begin with Theology, and though we cannot be sure that 
the common custom of putting the four great doctors at the 
head of the list was followed, there are places (i i sqq.) where 
Augustine is conspicuous, others where Bede (22 sqq.) and 
Ambrose (29 sqq.) come out. As we proceed, books of devotion 
and meditations and the apparatus of the later centuries are 
common. At 93 we enter the sphere of Grammar, but it 
is infected by Medicine and Theology ; it is between 1 1 8 and 
156 that we find most of the classical authors. We then 
relapse into miscellanies, among which some of the names 
of the authors, e. g Bonaventura, and the general complexion, 
show that the books are of rather recent date. About 199 are 
three or four French books ; Canon Law is prominent about 212. 
French texts and romances are fairly common after 307. I gain 
the impression that with about 156 the older part of the library 
ends, and that most of the books which follow were the gifts of 



14 List of Manuscripts formerly in 

single monks ; this, from a comparison of this catalogue with 
that of Christ Church, Canterbury, in the first part of which 
a classification (alphabetical) is perceptible, while in the second 
the gifts are chronicled apparently in the order of their accession. 

This notion is neither confirmed nor refuted by the older 
catalogue in Bodl. 1 63 which begins with Augustine, Histories, 
Jerome, Ambrose, and then becomes very miscellaneous, but 
contains, as it happens, no * grammatical ' books at all. It has 
to some extent, but not completely, the character of a * cloister ' 
library, such as is separately entered in the Christ Church 
catalogue, and consists of standard books of reference. 

The moral of what 1 have said so far is that the Matricularium 
is a thoroughly abnormal catalogue, and that the process of 
identifying extant books by its means is not easy, and is beset 
by uncertainties. It will not help us at all, we have seen, in the 
case of Bibles or Glosses or Augustine's de civitate Dei or many 
more ; and even when a series of small tracts in an extant MS. 
reminds us of something in it, we have to reckon, on the one 
hand, with possible omissions by the cataloguer or mutilations in 
the MS., and, on the other hand, with accidental coincidences 
due to the confirmed propensity of some groups of tracts to 
circulate together. Still, now that its real character has been 
pointed out, it ought not to be unfruitful in bringing Peter- 
borough books to light. 

As a matter of fact the number of Peterborough books 
known to exist is remarkably small. Of Psalters and service- 
books, Consuetudinaries and Chartularies, there may be a score ; 
but these are not library-books. Of library-books proper, 
I doubt if more than a couple of dozen can be pointed out. We 
know from Gunton and Patrick how cruelly the Church suffered 
in the Civil Wars ; we do not know from them or from any other 
source what proportion of the library had remained in situ down 
to that date. Nor do the experiences of the neighbouring 
abbeys afford much help. Crowland books are not common, 



Peterborough Abbey Library 15 

but we have no catalogue by which to judge of its wealth. 
Thorney books are perhaps commoner, e.g. at Edinburgh. For 
Ramsey we have a fragmentary catalogue showing it to have been 
rich, especially in Hebrew, but extant MSS. are rare. In Ely we 
have a case like Peterborough, where the buildings were pre- 
served : we know its press-mark, though we have no catalogue, 
and Ely MSS. may be quickly numbered. I am afraid it is clear 
that at the Dissolution there was great havoc wrought among 
all these libraries. Bury and Norwich were by far the luckiest 
of all those in East Anglia. In the former case a large block 
of MSS. came into the hands of a man who passed them on to 
Pembroke College, Cambridge ; in the latter, the Chapter seem 
to have been persuaded by one of their members to present 
a good many books to the University of Cambridge. 

At Lambeth there is a small set of MSS. described in the old 
catalogues as 'Bundles ', fasciculi ; the medieval ones among these 
are imperfect fragments of larger volumes, and in some cases 
I thought I saw reason to believe that they came from Peter- 
borough. This conjecture, if substantiated, would point to 
a devastation of the library earlier than the Civil Wars, and 
would confirm my guess that the Peterborough books were badly 
treated at the Dissolution. 

Of extant Peterborough books perhaps the most famous 
is the copy of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, Bodl. Laud. Misc. (i'}^(iy 
which, though it has no Peterborough inscription or mark, was 
undoubtedly written in the abbey. 

The list which I have been able to get together is, as I have 
said, a sadly short one. Of service-books I reckon more than 
of library-books. 

Psalters : 

Oxford. Bodl. Douce 296, of cent. xi. 
Barlow 22, of cent. xiv. 
Cambridge. C.C.C. 53, of cent. xiv.

French cardinal ; of cent, xiii, late. 

Other service-books :

Cambridge Magd. 10, Antiphoner of Gilbert de Stanford,

of their MSS., and another Register (No. 38)). 
Eton College 21, Jerome on the prophets (3, C. i). 
Helmingham Hall 6, Rabanus etc. (36, P. 2). 

Besides the well-known Swaffham book at Peterborough, 
and the Matriculariunty Peterborough has one or two MSS. 
of medieval date, and one — S. 6 in the Chapter Library — which 
I identify with F. IX (188). 

In the Royal Library at Copenhagen the MS. Ny kongelige 
Samling, 1854, acquired in England in 1921, appeared to me 
probably identical with C. 2 (24). 

It is, however, hardly conceivable that such collections as the 
Old Royal and Harley and the older Bodleian /oWj should not 
contain a fair sprinkling of Peterborough MSS. May the 
present publication have the effect of bringing them to light. 

^ This very good example was furnished me by Mr. Gilson, as also that 
from Helmingham. In the Harley MS. the table of contents, which begins 
with ' leronimi super Danielem liber unus ', is almost verbally identical with 
that of the Matricularium.
